D-Day/Flag Day Parade Saturday

Don't  forget a special remembrance today for those who served on D-Day, June 6th, 1944.  I mentioned on the show today about my Great Uncle Nick, who flew a bomber in WWII.  He is a great guy, one of the sweetest men you'll ever run into.  Sadly, he is losing his battle with Alzheimer's, and is a shell of his former self.  Estimates are that we lose 600 WWII Vets every day.  Appreciate them now...while we still can.

The rains will be done and the red, white and blue will be flying Saturday in Appleton. It's the 63rd Annual Appleton Flag Day Parade, with a tribute to the U.S. Army.  WHBY will start the action at 1:30, along with Pierce Manufacturing, handing out thousands of American flags, then the parade follows us at 2.  Should be mostly sunny and 72!
