Handicap Patrol/ Veterans

This week end is veterans day weekend, and today is Saturday November 9 th. The Amarillo Police department entered their Handicap patrol car in the veterans day parade which the city has every year. They asked only the veterans who volunteer for the patrol to ride in the car and there were four of us. I was so blessed for as we were driving up Polk street in down town Amarillo, the people would wave at us and some of the veterans that was not in the parade would salute us as we drove bye and it did not matter which branch of service you were in. This was very humbling and brought back memories of why I was in the military and how much I love my country.

  1. Jim,
    You have a keen insight into what is most valuable. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us, and thank you for your military service. Because freedom isn’t free, I don’t take mine for granted. Also, I appreciate you following my posts.
    Blessings to all, Michael
