To The Citizens Of Teague:
Does anyone, other than our Veterans know what a Veteran is? I mean in Teague?
What do they teach the students in Teague schools? Nothing about what our Veterans have done for them, us and our Nation? I guess not. No band – nothing from the Teague Schools for our Veterans.
No businesses of any kind – stores banks, car dealers, feed stores, churches, and only one family of Veterans were represented in the Veteran’s Day Parade.
Thanks to some of Teague’s Veterans, Veterans from other towns and the American Legion, we did have a Veteran’s Day Parade. Where was the Rodeo Association?
I use the word “Parade” since that was what it was supposed to be. But the representative from the City of Teague in the Police Hum-vee couldn’t waste his or her precious time to drive at a parade pace, but made a “Race” out of it. Some of the slower entrants had to drop out.
My son, a Veteran himself, decorated his tractor, his Veteran Daddy’s 1950 Farmall Cub and a trailer with the U.S.A., Texas and POW/MIA flags, plus the Flags of all the Military Services. He traveled from Waco to honor and show his respect for the Veterans in his family and his hometown. He had to be a drop out of the “Race.”
Thank you very much to The Teague Chronicle for taking and printing the pictures of the entrants of the parade.
When I talk to anyone, I sure don’t tell them I’m from Teague – I’m afraid they may have seen our “Race” er ah Parade.
Please Teague, can’t we do better next year? All it would take is a car, pickup, 4 wheeler, lawn mower, horse – anything to carry a sign advertising your business, your Veteran or whatever and add just three (3) words, “Thank you Veterans.” You know they are the reason you can own a business instead of the government.
