I went to a Mardi Gras parade in Slidell La. Jan 9th and in the parade there was a Marine marching band and they looked great. I was so happy to see them in the parade. The Marines looked so sharp and all had their uniforms so sharp and straight. The Marines were all in sequence and in time. They really did a great job representing the Marines and all that they stand for. I was so proud to see them. I just wanted to say Thank you for being in the parade and Thanks for all that the Marines do for all of us. Thank you to all the Marines everywhere and I am proud of each and everyone of you. May God bless each and everyone of you.
