Cool but pleasant weather allowed thousands to line Washington Street for the Armed Forces Day Parade....This is a day for the military to show off to the public its assets including the always pleasing 10th Mountain Division Band and many entertaining pieces of equipment including a bomb squad robot.
I walked in the parade with Senator Aubertine and the crowds were friendly....Likely more due to the Senator who still doesn't discourage speculation of a Lieutenant Governor slot on the Cuomo ticket.
The parade gave way to a downtown craft fair and display of antique cars.
The focus was on Green Street for a time as muscular dystrophy victim Storm Wood got to see the makeover local volunteers and contributors did to his home....
The custom bathroom was a highlight for this well liked fellow with special challenges.
The makeover was patterned on the ABC TV show when a bus pulls away to reveal the new home to anxious recipients.
It was an inspiring time and the effort was spearheaded by radio personality Johnny Spezzano.
