Thanks to all Post and American Legion members who helped and participated in this year's parade. Special thanks to the following people for the terrific work they did in decorating the National Guard trucks for the parade, as well as for their help afterwards in restoring the trucks back to their original condition: Harry Hunt, Dave Pressey, Smokey Whitledge, Bruce Vail, Howard Gilbert, Dick Hiser, Larry Prince, Ed Marshall, and Thomas Brooks. Thanks also to Dave Pressey's granddaughter, Elise, and Harry Hunt's granddaughter, Savannah for the duties they performed during the parade.

Special appreciation from Post 11461 to Sergeant Malcom Blackwell of the 40th Infantry Division, California National Guard for all his effort in supplying the trucks needed and for the two great drivers, Spec/4 David Rich and Spec/4 Ernie Martinez.
