December 15, Grant Park - Who Doesn't Love a Parade? Support for our Vets/Active Duty Military

Thanks to the Powers That Be for permission to post this! I appreciate it!

There's a homegrown parade this Saturday, December 15 at noon in Grant Park (from Balbo to Monnroe) to show support for our troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan as well as all servicemembers active and retired. Details in the article linked above.

This is being organized by two folks who just want to say thank you and we support you - can our Chicago area Dopers show a little love too?

My husband and I are planning to go and I'm telling everyone I know and asking them too. Whether you supported this war or not is immaterial in my opinion - this is about the vets and what they've done, and us saying thank you for your service and your sacrifices.

I really hope I'll see you there. I'll bet you'll be happy you went.
