Memorial Day 2010

 Steve's 1946 Chrysler Town and Country

The  Memorial Day events  included  5 wreath-laying ceremonies before the parade.  The pictures show the  memorial to a young man from Naperville who was killed on 9/11  when  the Pentagon was hit, and World War  II nurses awaiting the  wreath-laying  in the Naperville cemetery at the GAR monument for Civil War soldiers.  After this,  there was a sudden  downpour.  Literally thousands of  people along the parade  route were  drenched as they headed for their cars and homes  Many units and bands suffered the same fate.
