Michael’s JROTC unit marched in the annual “Salute to Veterans” parade in downtown Charlotte this morning. It was perfect weather and a great turnout for the parade. Charlotte really has a beautiful downtown area. I should get down there more.
Those with a sharp eye (or maybe my Dad) will pick out a difference on Michael’s epaulets…
Just before the parade Michael was promoted to the rank of Corporal – skipping Private First Class altogether (much to the chagrin of most of the second-year cadets who did not obtain Corporal until the end of their first year).
There were lots of interesting participants in the parade but I have to show off this one for my Mom.
A group of 60+ cheerleaders still going strong.
Happy Veterans Day to everyone and Thanks, Dad. Your grandson appears to be following in your footsteps.
