Yesterday at my town’s Memorial Day parade WWII Veterans marched and rode alongside the latest model BMW’s from the local car dealership. Perhaps only in a fancy town like mine can BMW’s seem patriotic, or could Nazi-fighting WWII Veterans join ranks with automobiles manufactured by the Bavarian Motor Works. I personally don’t really care that German-made cars were accompanying these old flag-waving Veterans in the parade – heck, they probably run better than Fords, anyway. But I’m not quite sure why BMW’s from the local dealership or a line of Corvettes from the Corvette Club need to be in the parade in the first place. Is this a car show or a Memorial Day parade?
Regardless, the Veterans got the largest applause, and that’s the way it should be. Thank you, Vets, for your service to our country.
