United We Stand: the theme for 2019 Old Glory Boat Parade
Led by the OC Sheriff Harbor Patrol...with water canons
Organized by the American Legion Yacht Club part of Newport Beach Post 291
Flag draped boats celebrate the 243rd birthday of the United States
Not all flags are created equal.....
..but the grander, the better!
All celebrants are equal even if the boats are not.
It is easy to join Lady Liberty in a Happy Birthday toast.
Insert your own caption for this one, please.
Lady Liberty and Uncle Sam
Thank you for your service: freedom is not free.
There are some rewards for serving.
