. This is the first I have heard about the National Guard... I will be there, these guys have risked their lives of each and every on of us and I hope every one shows them respect, if you believe in what is going on over seas or not, this is about the troops not the war

Had a blast with the Drama Guild families. Hope there are some more pictures posted. Since we walk in it, we obviously miss what is going in front and behind us. It looked like a good size crowd. (If the word is out, hopefully today for National Guard we can get just as big a crowd).
