The number of people that turned out for the parade was awesome. It was great to see the communityRead More come together to show our support for our Iraq/Afghanistan veterans, thank them for their service and most importantly welcome them home. The organizers took on a huge undertaking putting this together in such a short amout of time. But what a great success it turned out to be!

Our beautiful city of St Peters was in the only trolley and was number 21 in the parade. I am soRead More proud of our Veterans Memorial Commission members for coming to the "WELCOME HOME returning servcemen and women event. This event was the first in the nation, all AMERICANS standing up and thanking the brave men and women for their service. What was so special , somehow all wars was brought with a THANK YOU.. I have seen so many children, to the mature age standing and saying, THANK YOU and we LOVE YOU.

I was down there in front of the Bank of America building. It was very well attended by peopleRead More paying respects. It was windy and quite cold and the parade was a very impressive display. The parade took an hour and twenty minutes to pass by. It was a very nice presentation for the returning veterans and passing of memorials for fallen soldiers, sailors and airmen. I would not have missed it. I saw one memorial for a young female airman. I wish I knew her story. The Patriot Guard was well represented. Many fire trucks were on hand. I saw an ambulance from the North Jeffereson County district. I even saw two fire trucks from Boeing there. The lady I was standing next to told me that when her husband returned from Viet Nam the reception was quite different. She was very impressed with the reception for the returned soldiers. Thank you to all who served.

Here's another old gripe. St Louis County Library refused to issue my a library card based upon myRead More residence in the University City Library District. This was disappointing cause I spend most my awake hours in North County. Finally received my STL Co. library card based upon my lie that I lived in Olivette (because of my 63132 zip). I have always enjoyed reading...silently or aloud. If I volunteer to read for the St Louis County Library...will I need to continue living the LIE?

We live in UCity and our kids all have cards for the Clayton branch of the County Library (it's aRead More little closer to our house than the loop). They have never had any trouble getting cards or checking out books. That being said, it still seems strange to me that all of the county libraries don't form one big consortium.

The refusal to issue a library card could have been as long as twenty years ago. My reconning wasRead More U.City Library was a member of a consortium with other municipal libraries...but, not St Louis County Library. It did seem strange that some of my St Louis County taxes did not find its way into the STL Co. Library coffers. Hopefully, a crack investigative reporter could clarify the current status of Library policy. Kindle has proved a tremendous blessing here in Belize.
