2018 NORMAN VETERANS PARADE -HONOR TO SERVE

Sunday, November 11th was cold with a pretty good wind. The paraders assembled near the OU Weather Center beginning at 12:30. This parade was very well organized, thanks to the efforts of the City of Norman and our lifetime parade Coordinator, Petty Officer first class (who can still fit into his dress blue uniform), Terry O'Dea.....

And so can Eddie (above) .......  and also Lawrence





Marine color guard in their dress uniforms always look sharp.....



and the cRc classic cars and trucks are ready to transport our distinguished veterans to the memorial site.......



A CHINOOK helicopter comes over for a landing at the Memorial site......


Let's find out more about this beast's capacity from Senior Master Sgt Cox....


50,000 pound payload will go in here.....personnel or material....


A smaller copter arrives, blowing leaves as well as the trees everywhere with the rotor wash....


Our cRc classics form two lines flanking the area behind the seating...all Veterans and speakers are delivered in style. The mayor thanks the cRc for providing our beautiful cars for the event.


There were 4 bands present.....the OU spirit band, Norman North HS, Norman HS, and Washington HS. A great musical feast!


The Norman Police Department offer a 21 gun salute to fallen Vets...


A single Boy Scout bugler plays taps to a silent and respectful crowd.....


And just when you thought that your classic car drooled more oil than any other car....along comes this humvee and shows us that the military thinks the same way, except they worry about a used oil thief getting their drip pan.
