We are proud to support our veterans each year by allowing a special group to use our 5 ton Army truck in the parade downtown. These are the guys who fought the famous Ia Drang Valley battle in Viet Nam. The book, “We were soldiers once and young” was captured in the Mel Gibson movie, “We were soldiers”. Standing on each end of the banner are James Coleman on the left and Nathan Harvey on the right. James flew in from Chicago to be in the parade with his buddies who met them downtown. This shot was taken at our morning break, and all the men on the truck have served in the armed forces.
