Palm Springs Veteran's Parade 2015 ~PEACE!

PEACE! Denny Dennis Magnusen and I at the Palm Springs Veterans Day Parade. These pics were right before and right after the parade. I have to say this was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Such a great day!Kelly Ostman-Colucci took these pics. Both Kelly and Robert Smith pushed Denny, as did I. Anna Bowen Smith and I both carried flags for PEACE.
People were so receptive. Denny truly came alive as he waved peace signs to the crowd. It was fantastic. I had no idea it would be so incredible. We did have one elderly small woman in our group attacked, actually hit, by some whacko guy in the beginning, but after that all was beautiful and PEACE-ful!
Remember all, to a Vietnam Vet tell them "WELCOME HOME", instead of "Thank you for your service." As Denny says, they just wanted to go home and be welcomed back home.
