It was a privilege for the SRTC to participate in today's Shelton-Derby parade to honor those who served our country. Please look carefully at the signs attached to our float which give the service details of RTC members who are veterans or for RTC member relatives. All major services branches were covered and our service locations were world-wide, making our float a living history lesson! We are grateful for the opportunity to show our appreciation to our veterans in some... small way. Very special thanks to the following persons whose help was vital to making our float possible:
