As I have said before we love parades here in Fernandina, and what better parade is there than one honoring our veterans. It was another great fall day with above normal temperatures and it brought out many of our locals to both participate in and cheer on our veterans. Families lined the streets and police, fire and all manner of uniformed services marched. I love to see the American flag being honored and remember how many photos from wars show our military raising the flag in victory. It is hard to really fathom how many have sacrificed their lives for our country and all of us are living in a free and democaratic country because of their belief, sacrifice and valour. Thanks to all our service personnel both past, present and future and their dedicated efforts to keep us safe and secure. I hope you enjoy these photos!
