Veterans Day Parade, 11/11/11, No. 6

37th Annual Ross Hollywood Veterans Day Parade

Several vehicles had banners or signs that identified their riders.

USMC, the United States Marine Corps. This wonderful vintage vehicle, which Flickr friend Terry has identified as a 1940 Deluxe Ford panel truck, is the perfect lead-in to tomorrow's post, the last of the ones which feature veterans on wheels.

Nice shots, I hope people continue to honor our vets as we get older.

Everyone seemed to be enjoying theirselves participating in this parade. You caught some great faces in your photos. The 40 Ford Panel is really an eyecatcher!

This is a very cool parade!

I checked with my husband on the tank and he says it's a "Stuart" M3A1 light tank from WWII. They were made in 1941 for US forces and initially for the British.

Those are some great autos! I love the Studebaker. It does have a sweet happy face.
