Why are Star Troopers in the Veterans Day Parade? They are not real and not Veterans. This is almost embarrassing. Also why do flags from other countries fly in an American Veterans day Parade. There were Scottish, Canadian, Mexican and probably a few more.

Jeb Bing, this is the best you chose to do? Picture of tattooed Mrs. N. California, politicians, a far away picture of the USMC presenting colors with the other Veterans on stage invisible behind flags? This is how you honor our Veterans of the last 100 years of wars? You show up at meetings and this is the best you give the Veterans and their families and our communities? Seriously? Well, seems to be the continuous theme of this entire day in the decline of America.

WHY WAS A CARTOON THEME, STAR WARS, MOVIE SOUNDTRACK PLACED IN FRONT OF THE HARD-WORKING TIRELESS VETERAN FAMILY SUPPORT GROUP "PLEASANTON MILITARY FAMILIES"? WITH NO MENTION OF THEM AND ALL THEIR VETERAN WORK THEY DO FOR THE COMMUNITY AND OUR CHILDREN AND SPOUSES?! THEY ARE THE MAINSTREAM PROTOTYPE FOR OTHER COMMUNITIES NATIONWIDE?! WHERE IS A PICTURE OF CAPT. WM. PETERS WHO FLEW OUT HERE ON HIS OWN DIME WITH A CV OF MILITARY AND COMMUNITY SERVICE LONGER THAN YOUR ARMS? WHERE ARE PICTURES OF THE BRAVE MILITARY PURPLE HEART RECIPIENTS WHO WERE ON STAGE? USMC WHO GAVE A TREMENDOUS SPEECH OR RET. ARMY SGT. VICTOR THIBEAULT SILVER STAR AND T-W-O PURPLE HEART MEDALS??!! WHY DID YOU EVEN BOTHER "COVERING" THIS AUSPICIOUS REVERED EVENT? YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED!!

My husband, who is a veteran of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam and Dessert Storm, was in the parade riding his motorcycle with the Warriors Watch.
We watched the slide show of all of the wonderful pictures and music that you put together for the event. Thank you so much for all of your work in making such a nice presentation of the Veteran's Parade. It was just great and you did a fantastic job.
