At the Heritage and Freedom Fest on July 3rd in O’Fallon Missouri, the St. Charles County Veterans Museum won 1st place for “Most Patriotic Float.” Of course, what could be more patriotic than a float load of veterans from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Iraqi Freedom and the Persian Gulf Wars.

Here are just a few of the pictures.
