Memory Day: Snapshots

This picture was taken 24 years ago, in February 1992.

Boy Scout Troop 131 was marching in the annual George Washington Birthday Parade in Old Town Alexandria and repeating the pithy slogan, "East is east, west is west, 131 is the best," solely because no one could think of any words that rhymed with "south".

I was carrying the Alexandria City Flag here, not out of civic pride, but because one of the adult leaders said I was too small to do it and predicted that I would get tired before the end of the parade. I survived.
