Whenever anyone asks me what some of my passions are, I always add veterans to the list. I just don't think that our country does enough to care for our veterans. Whether it's medical care, homelessness, therapy, or just a simple thank you, we still have a long way to go. We should always be honoring America's veterans and military personnel and this parade is just a small way to do so.
