in Celina, OH at the Lake Freedom Festival with the Adams Clan and friends.
Among all of the Adams', they own over 20 Military Vehicles that either have been restored or are in the process of being restored. They are always willing to share them with veterans - taking pride in what the Veterans accomplished during their service times. Not just their own family's veterans, but ALL Veterans. It was great to see them all and to visit with many of those who were in attendance at the Freedom Festival.
The Grand Marshall and his better half... Marion and Fern. Marion was honored in TWO Fourth of July Parades.. one in Celina and the other in Troy, Ohio.
Cousins Fred and Sandra Scherer were there. Sandra was distraught that there was no galley to work in!
Our favorite clown and his beautiful family were there - It was good to see you Joey, and to meet the rest of your clan!
Getting ready to move out! (I didn't get any real parade photos as I was fortunate enough to get to ride in the halftrack! It was great to see all of the Veterans along the way and see them say "WOW!" as the vehicles rolled by)
Some vehicles decided to bypass the actual parade and make a grand entrance to the Festival Grounds...
Lee piloting the LCVP, Kenny and his DUWKS and Tom Price with his LVT. Those who were in the grounds waiting for the display set up really had a treat seeing these vehicles do their job in fine Amphib tradition!
The Adams' entourage....
And if any of you didn't notice, you'll see that we did plenty of advertising for our Grey Lady!
