Memorial Day Salute
Ever since Memorial Day as we know it became an official US holiday in 1968, parades have long been a part of our tradition. Marching up and down main street USA to honor our fallen military heroes. One such occasion, in none other than Gettysburg, PA was a non-profit group named Military Vehicle Preservation Association (MVPA). We are blessed to have reader submitted photos (thanks Mary) from that Memorial Day Parade! The timing was perfect as I was preparing for this weekend's special edition!
MVPA's purpose as described in their mission statement is:
"...DEDICATED TO PROVIDING AN INTERNATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR MILITARY VEHICLE ENTHUSIASTS, HISTORIANS, PRESERVATIONISTS AND COLLECTORS INTERESTED IN THE ACQUISITION, RESTORATION, PRESERVATION, SAFE OPERATION AND PUBLIC EDUCATION OF HISTORIC MILITARY TRANSPORT."
I'm grateful to have learned about them and see some of their vehicles! Check out their website to learn more.
As always, feel free to comment or send in your own photos!
