Parade could have honored vets better

Success - Article sent! close

I was very disappointed and thought it was very disrespectful that the VFW Color Guards and members were placed behind a tow truck company instead of following the police and fire departments (in the Hoffman Estates Fourth of July parade).

These men and women deserved better than that.

I hope next year the line-up placement will honor our veterans with more respect. Thanks to all of our veterans for your support.
