Thousands turned out for the annual parade in Brainerd, MN.
A Vietnam Veteran was seen here being interviewed.
Your Gilbert Lodge Photographer Mark Persons, a tough old bird, was on hand to catch the parade.
An Honor Guard from the Brainerd American Legion, Brainerd VFW and the Crow Wing County DAV.
Two Korean War veterans were there along with some who will be veterans someday.
The Crow Wing County Mounted Patrol paraded down the street.
This fire engine was popular with kids and adults.
The American Legion Riders showed their stuff.
The Brainerd High School Marching Band.
