I really like the uniforms. Different for a pipe band.
Every man thinks meanly of himself for not having been a soldier.
People don't like to be meddled with.

You guys look great! The second photo is my favorite.

It probably stems from our "relaxed" culture here in Fairbanks. We are way way casual about most things....it fits.

Very cool. I had a little shiver when I read the first line. I played cymbals when I was 5 (same parade 40 years ago) in the Golden Nugget marching band. All I remember were the red Mississippi string ties. I still have mine somewhere.
Cowards die many times before their deaths; the valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders I yet have heard, it seems to me most strange that men should fear; seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come. --William Shakespeare, Julius Caesar

Very nice pictures. I was riding a float in the Golden Day's parade of 1973...nice memories.
