This was taken during the Vietnam War days. Notice the soldier beside the float.

Not all the photos are in bad shape, just a few. I actually enjoy doing this, it’s relaxing.
More fun stuff tomorrow, and if you missed the the first and second parts of the parade, it’s not too late. Here are the links:
