I hope everyone got a chance to go out and show appreciation for our veterans today in Bozeman.  The parade was a moving experience, so many people have served our country to help us get the freedoms that we have.  Old Coyote was the parade grand marshall, he flew in over 50 missions in various bomber planes.  If you missed the parade this year, maybe you can make it to the next years!
