Notes: Fly your big flags. We will place the 27 historic US flags dating from the country’s founding to today in their position on the field. We won’t stand next to them during the opening ceremony.
A beautiful day to participate in this patriotic celebration of our veterans. We kicked off the parade following a sheriff dept vehicle with lights and sirens going. Once parked at the field, the 14 PGR opened the ceremony by carrying the 28 historic US Flags one by one to its location on the field.
