Nice to see true patriotism

My wife and I attended our first Veterans Day parade in Biloxi, Miss. We are new residents to the area. It was so nice to see the older WW2 vets from the local retirement home for the Armed Forces, and was great to see true patriotism displayed by the local community and parade participants. The local schools had representation as did the local military units. The flag was saluted and respected as each unit passed. This was an enlightening experience in the light of the disrespect shown our national anthem and Flag in recent professional sporting events. True respect for the Armed Forces was a nice change.
