page shows some photos from the 2015 Elk Grove Veterans Day Parade.
Picture this: a
sun- splashed, sparkling morning in Elk Grove under chromatic
trees, hundreds of people in uniforms they wore long ago, platoons of
kids- scouts, high school bands, flag bears, ROTC, oodles of observers,
lots of floats and fifteen of the Gray Eagles. Three scored a ride in
the 1975 Seagrave fire engine brought by Martin Ashley, co-founder of
our organization. Iris Taggart wore her high wattage red/white/blue
parade outfit in Hal Smith's '56 T-bird convertible. Glen Vanderford
and Mel Chorich rode in the red '61 Chrysler convertible of the P- 38 "
Fork Tailed Devils". John Baeta and Glen wore their War II
uniforms! These three rides looked real smart all in formation. Jerry
Quint, Partrick and Patricia Kinney walked with the group. Hope to see
you there next year. Hand salute to all our veterans- then and
