Forgive me if this has been done before (and I've forgotten) but here is something I think would be a completely excellent idea. For quite a few years, they have a long parade of active-duty soldiers who parade around the track. This has always been a pretty cool thing...after all...it is Memorial Day weekend.
Have they ever considered including veterans? What if, for instance, this year they had World War 2 veterans in those cars? Or Korea or Vietnam?
The thought came into my head recently when I was discussing with someone that sadly each and every year there are fewer and fewer WW2 veterans left. Both of my grandfathers served and both have passed away.
Anyway...it's just an idea and I was wondering what other people thought. Personally, I think it would be extremelly moving.
