Editors note: readers were asked to submit their best moment of Good Ol’ Days to fortscott.biz
My special moment in the Good Old Days Parade was the appearance of the American Legion Fort Scott Post 25 Color Guard.
Jim Streeter, a 73 year member of Post 25, does not remember the last time an American Legion Color Guard participated in Fort Scott parades.
The Color Guard members marching are (L-R) Skipper Brown, Darrell Spencer, Faye Brown and Leslie Montee.
Marvin Taylor is riding in the van and was available as a Color Guard backup should one of the Color Guard members be unable to complete the parade route.
I’m very proud as Post 25 Commander of these Legionnaires who stepped up and formed our American Legion Color Guard.
Carl Jowers. Post 25 Commander.
