AAR West Point 4th of July Parade 2009

The West Point 4th of July Parade is amazing.  Something for everyone!

Troops of the 101st Airborne


A Mayor riding horseback


Colonial Militia marching in the streets


And voluptuous Indian maidens lining the parade route!


And a friendly and patriotic crowd to boot!

Once again we joined our friend, Mayor Joe D’Onofrio, West Point Garrison Commander, Colonel Dan Bruno, and a host of other organizations to march in the West Point/Highland Falls Independence Day Parade.  The 101st Airborne, Military Order of the Purple Heart, Wounded Warriors, American Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Rolling Thunder, and many more groups took part.  Once again the people of Highland Falls and the surrounding communities made us all feel welcome and right at home.

Watching Mayor Joe ride his horse was more than worth the price of admission!  An extra treat was seeing Gary and his half track!  Highland Falls feels just like its nickname “Hometown, USA”.

Thank you all for having us!
