Flash Back Friday – Russellville Veterans Day Parade

 

Russellville residents take time each year to honor veterans with a parade.  Folks line up on Main Street for the big event.

They might not totally understand the importance of their presence; how waving that small flag, saluting that veteran, or applauding that motorcycle group can make a difference, but it does.  They just think it’s fun.
