Recently, many people have said President Trump's suggestion of a military parade, was a bad idea (And that's mild compared to what some people actually said.)

But, the irony is, America loves parades! (See pics below)

On the latest VetStory podcast we talked parade madness and proposed the ultimate party in the streets! Our guests were:

  • Joe Davis, VFW National Spokesperson
  • Jake Hughes, Army Veteran
  • Plus colorful comments from Facebook


Why wait until Summer? Here's just a few of the recent parades America loves:

Olympic Parade:

Drunk Parade:

They've been celebrating Mardis Gras in New Orleans with daily parades since February 2nd (With the first one on January 6, 2018)


Even Drunker Parade:

In fairness to Philly fans, winning your first Superbowl Championship is a good reason to have a huge parade...and drink beers at 10am!

Moral of the Story? "If you have a good enough reason, everyone loves a parade!"
