A day of observance: honoring our veterans

Ann Richards School for Young Women Leaders passed by in review, a nearby tourist said, in apparent amazement, “Look! They’re all girls!” And so they were. And they were wonderful, and so were the marchers from Del Valle, as always.

It was a fine day, and the Austin Veterans’ Day parade was splendid.

There had been murmurings of controversy over what flags or banners might be displayed. The mayor did not seem to be in evidence; nor did there seem to be any display of the types of flags or banners that had inspired discussion.

View some visual souvenirs in the form of still Veterans’ Day parade, Austin, 2017 and videos. Many were the poppies; many were the Stars and Stripes. Happy were the faces.
