Keeping the memory of the “boys in blue” alive on July 4th.

Commander & Mrs. Nash marching on July 4th


In two 4th of July parades, Commander & Mrs. Nash kept the memory of the “boys in blue” alive. The first parade was held in Lake Linden, Michigan-followed later in the afternoon in the town of Gay. The weather was clear and the temperature hot. Crowds lined both sides of the streets. Flags were everywhere. There were active duty military personnel participating, as well as, veterans. Various civic clubs were also there. It was encouraging to see people in the crowd rooting for the marchers. It was most encouraging to see folks who still love America.  Commander & Mrs. Nash added a “special touch” to the celebration with their Civil War era presence.  Bill Nash is the current Camp Commander of Camp # 2, Department of Michigan, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War. It was a day for all to reflect on the uniqueness of America, the sacrifices that have been made for the freedom it has earned, and the need to stay vigilant to preserve its heritage for the future. God bless America.
