It was an impressive showing, to say the least, when more than 2,000 people lined the streets of New Richmond to wave farewell to soldiers from Company B on Monday.
You never know what cool weather and an afternoon event will mean for attendance, but area residents outdid themselves by showing up in force.
It was also heartening to see so many businesses stop their work and step out to join in the festivities. It appeared the entire Bosch Doboy crew was along the road at the appointed time. Students from Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College and our local schools were also lined up and waving flags.
Way to go.
Keep the local soldiers and their families in your thoughts and prayers over the next year. And if you can, why don’t you offer to mow a family’s lawn or shovel some snow while their loved one is away.
