Honoring Carmel Whetzel, World War II Veteran & [email protected] DC Memorial Day 2019. He and 11 other WW II Veterans were honored in the 2019 Washington DC Memorial Day Parade. Each World War II Veteran sat in the front seat of a very expensive Restored Antique Car. I could not be in the parade since I had to drop Carmel off at the start of the parade route and park my car in a "Reserved Parking Area for Caregivers" to pick him up at the end of the parade route. Some of these photos was last years parade that I took as we rode in restored military vehicles with the Korean War Veteran Assn Chapter 313. You get a "birds eye view" of the parade from a Military 2 1/2 ton truck looking down at the parade attendees. Josh Morimoto.
