First in the Nation… OVER 100,000 Turn Out For St. Louis Iraq War Heroes Parade (Video)

(Updated and bumped for those of you who missed this – Over 100,000 attended parade!)
First in the nation…
St. Louis held the first “Welcome Home the Heroes” parade in St. Louis, Missouri.

Over 100,000 attended the parade today to honor Iraq War vets. It was an impressive turnout.

I was honored to watch the parade with famous Veteran Sgt. Mark Seavey who came in with his wife for the event.


The Beaumont High School Blue Jackets marched in the parade.


Many of the participants were there to honor fallen soldiers. SGT Eddie Forrest was remembered.

The Patriot Guard Bikers were a huge hit at the St. Louis Welcome Home parade.


A few of the Marines took a break from marching and let us take their picture.


The St. Louis Budweiser Clydesdales showed their patriotism.


This wounded warrior got a huge applause when he walked by.

Welcome Home, American Heroes!

Thank you for your service.

UPDATE: Mark Seavey has more on this historical event here and video here.
