One last post: the Jim Thorpe 2011 Veterans’ day Parade

I’m posting this here primarily so I can post the pictures on Truth Before Dishonor without eating up too much of Mr Hitchcock’s bandwidth!


More pictures after the fold.


The Pennsylvania State Police


Jim Thorpe American Legion, Post 304


Jim Thorpe Area High School Marching Olympians


You’ve got to appreciate a big ol’ KW in the parade! This picture is especially for John Hitchcock.


And this is what the KW was pulling: the Albrightsville Post 294 Veterans of Foreign Wars


You’ve got to like the car for State Representative Doyle Heffley (R-PA 122nd), but that’s not Mr Heffley in the car; that’s him walking behind the car, doing what any good politician should do: throwing candy to the kids! :)

One of many Boy Scouts troops


There were lots of cool cars in the parade; here, a dune buggy, in metal flake green.


The first of many firetrucks; the sign notes that the driver served our country for 26 years in the United States Navy.


A line of firetrucks.


Lehighton Area High School marching band.


Our only Republican County Commissioner, Wayne Nothstein, is an Air Force veteran.


Vintage military Jeep


How many of our soldiers have ridden in a truck like this one?


Army JROTC. It looks like the major marching with the cadets has some work to do on instilling discipline!
