Veteran’s Day Festival 2014

Saturday, November 8, 2014 we went to Denver’s Civic Center Park for a festival. This festival was for American veterans.

The parade was in the morning, followed by the festival.   It was fun.   We like veterans.   They protect the freedom we all enjoy.

We saw military vehicles.

We like it!

This one should not drive on the highway.

This soldier was very nice to us, also

It is a M29C Weasel, from 1944, and built by Studebaker.   It was used in World War II.   Look at these tires.

This is fabulous

We liked all of these.

The people at Rocky Mountain Honor Flight had a great booth. They accept donations to take veterans, mostly World War II Veterans, to Washington D.C. to see the monuments dedicated to themselves, the American heroes.   The veterans do not pay for this trip, and if necessary a Guardian companion is provided for them.   This poster shows some veterans in Washington D.C. from prior trips.

More groups help veterans.   We like people helping the veterans that preserve our life style.   We saw and heard this band.

The played while many veterans were eating.   Of course, I, Zeb the Duck, and Soapy Smith Duck, and our moms also wanted to eat.   We tried one of the food trucks. Look at these sandwiches.

We love big sandwiches

They were delicious.   You may have noticed our new duck relatives.   Our moms purchased them from another group that helps veterans.

Saturday was a warm, sunny day for a parade and festival. We hope you had a good weekend and attended a Veteran’s Day activity. Veteran’s Day is Tuesday, November 11, but many cities celebrate the Saturday before the holiday.

We love America
