This past Saturday, Tucson, Arizona, celebrated the return of servicemen and women in Iraq and Afghanistan in Tucson’s Welcome Home Veterans Parade, and paid tribute to those lost while on duty. Complete with marching bands, bagpipe players and hundreds of Tucsonans in attendance, the parade was a smashing success.

The parents of Todd Bowers, director of government affairs for Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) and friend of TRMS, attended the parade and shared some photos with us. They write:

We thought you and Ms. Maddow would enjoy these photos of this veteran at Tucson’s Welcome Home Veterans Parade. Although using a walker, he stood and saluted each time the Stars and Stripes passed by.
