Thank you Mack.
Separate but related: Boy, was I proud that my old alma- mater, Culver Military Academy, was again represented in the Parade.
Culver's Black Horse Troop is a national treasure -- and once again the Troopers -- sharp and poised as ever -- did the old school and "W" proud!!
Clinton forbade the Troop from participating in either Inaugural Parade for fear of projecting too military a presence...if you can imagine. The Troop had been a significant element in the Parade since President Wilson's inauguration -- and I was so proud to see them back where they belong. (I am CMA, class of "48, but an infantry grunt in "B" Company.)
What a day!!! Proud to be an American!
