Area Vets and Families participate in July 4th Parade

Veterans from VFW Posts 6280 and 5608, American Legion Post 99, American Volunteers and their families participate in a July 4th Parade in Salem, MO.  Included were vintage military vehicles, a float and a civilian hummer.  VSO John Russell and wife (2d photo down) were instrumental in setting up the float entry (complete with flags, bunting, lights and patriotic music) and organizing the event.  Sr Vice Cdr Jay Howard from VFW Post 5608 drove the Vietnam era Mule (last photo).  Thank you, Salem News for some of the great photos taken here.
