I remember sitting on the curb of the Grand Concourse, just north of Poe Park, and watching the soldiers from WWI, WWII and the Spanish American War march in the huge parade on Memorial Day. I remember how old the older veterans looked and how much like my dad the WWII vets looked. I also remember how the drums vibrated through my body, and the trumpets echoed through the building canyons. My dad never marched and never spoke of his service. When I was about 7 we had an army buddy of his who lived in South Dakota visit us in NY. He told us stories over dinner that I will never forget about my dad's and others' heroism.
