Last Friday I went downtown to see the 2023 Tulsa Veterans Day Parade. I see whenever I can. Tulsa has one of the largest such parades in the country.
This year, son Logan joined me. The first time I have ever watched the parade with anybody!
A World War II vintage DC-3 Transport aircraft started flying over downtown Tulsa well before the parade and kept flying circles throughout.
A Tulsa Police Department motorcycle squad opened the parade.
Their were High School marching bands representing their schools.
TPD had some of the officers who are veterans in the parade with one of their armored vehicles.
Some veterans organizations showed up.
Including the Veterans Administration.
Logan liked all the military vehicles that were in the parade.
Several Junior ROTC squads showed up and marched.
Miss Oklahoma showed up with a big smile. I googled her and her name is Sunny Day. What a name,!! I think it fits here. When I lived in Dallas years ago I knew somebody named Happy Holidays.
And more military vehicles. This looks foreign to me but still cool.
My former coworkers from the company I retired from showed up in force.
And it still wasn’t over. I didn’t stay long enough this time but after the parade is over, veterans from all over town show up and march. Some in full uniform some with just a cap. Lots of young people and lots of elderly folks showing their pride.
I’ve missed the parade a few times over the years but I’ll keep going for as long as I can.
