Perhaps there are other U.S. cities who would be happy to hold a patriotic parade in honor of the military.

#2 With this OPTEMPO, None of us want that stupid parade anyways. If anyone does not remember, garrison army sucks monkey ball and on top of that, the equipment is always not really made for the streets of DC anyway.
Give them a day off. THAT is how you Honor the Military.
The pay raise was enough. But moving all my shit to DC to parade around people that hate me and have to interrupt the Military order for equipment is also unreasonable. It is the thought that counts, Guy.
In My world, the less shit I have to do as busy work the better.
I do not even put toilet paper on holders anymore.
We know what we have and do not follow FDR
