Was there any effort to ask for help by the 'parade committee', or whoever is incharge? Was there an effort to invite veterans to jon in the parade? Other than the Marine Sgt there was only one other vet - 'Doc' who served in Viet Nam. why did the hundreds - I suppose - of Seekonk vets contribute by marching in 'their' parade?

Here's to David, your brother, and a friend, going back to your Mom's kindergarten days. He made the ultimate sacrifice for us all.

I didn't know Seekonk was having a parade. Chris: Thanks ...You cleared up why my kids didn’t know anything about a parade. They are not in boy/girl scouts and the only sport they play is basketball (which is over). My kids are both from Martin. They said they were never asked to participate or make anything. Plymouth was crazy, festive and everyone was having a good time in honor of Memorial Day. I even saw a man wearing shorts & t-shirt print of the flag. Their parade was a good size with a mix of businesses, town schools, boy/girl scouts & the band. Liquor stores were closed. Honestly, one of my favorites was walking through the graveyard, looking at all the stones, some with military ribbons and medallions. Some people left notes to their loved ones.
