Veterans Day 2011

This is a picture of a parade of men in 1917 in Columbus Montana, looks like a few were in some kind of uniforms, but I do not know the occasion. My dad's family moved to Columbus in 1910 soon after the 1910 census (so they appeared in the Minnesota census). My dad was almost 4 when they moved there and he grew up in Columbus.

The last two years I have made a tribute to my Uncle Leigh Hansen and my father Claude Hansen, both WWII veterans, but before that the next war any of my ancestors participated in was the Blackhawk War, and he did not see any action as they were still in training when Blackhawk surrendered.
