Welcome Home Parade for 41st Brigade 11 Sept 2010

A fitting welcome home parade for the 41st Brigade,

From a veteran to all veterans and the families supporting our soldiers, thank you for your sacrifice in serving this great country.

This welcome home parade occured on 11 Sep 2010 in Tigard OR. The parade staging began at 08:00 on 11 Sep 2010 (Saturday) and parade progression began at 10:00am from Tigard city hall. The parade route ran down Hall Blvd, turned right on Durham road past Tigard HS, then ended at Cook's park. The 41st Brigade, about 300 soldiers and military families attended and were welcomed by community where there was much food and celebration for all in the Park.

The weather cooperated beautifully (about 75 degrees) on this Saturday morning not disappointing anyone throughout the entire day. We couldn't have asked for more.

Be sure to thank a vet, or returning soldiers for the sacrifices they and their families make...  So all citizens can enjoy the freedoms and liberties we enjoy it is necessary we show them our  support. God bless America and God bless our troops.

Yes I was in the parade in my brother Nick's Vintage 65 Mustang convertible. The 41st Brigade was our Company Battalion HQs. I was assigned and served within the Battalion's 141st C-Med Company during the mid-90's after receiving my commission from OMA (Oregon Military Academy) Monmouth, OR and then branched within the Medical Services Corp.

I wanted to personally welcome home our soldiers and let all veterans know how much their service means to our family, friends and neighbors. And lastly, to let them know one of their own is running for Tigard City Council, 2 November 2010. And that your families service and sacrifices will always be first and foremost on my mind.

I'm always asked about the jacket. I purchased this red, white and blue jacket, with American eagle on the back 3 years ago at Deniles Farmers market, Sacramento. I needed another leather jacket as optional protective gear when riding my BMW 1150 Adventure bike. I typically wear it during 4th July, memorial day, or when I'm feeling patriotic.
