Memorial Day Parade, 1999
12 years ago today, I marched along the streets of Branchville, NJ in a Memorial Day Parade as a member of the High Point Marching Band. I was a sophomore at the time, and yes, I’m the short one with the trumpet on the left. I’m not quite sure, but I believe this was the year that the temperatures were quite hot, and with our heavy outfits, a few members of the band passed out in the nearby park…I myself was pretty lightheaded at one point.
Here’s to Memorial Day, however you might observe this day of remembrance.
