Although I think it's a great tribute. I don't think it's appropriate for a christmas parade that's geared towards children. Maybe put in in front of the firehouse for all too see year round.

7:43 PM I understand your point of view but the soldiers and their families suffer all year long and longer without any limit on age.

Christmas is a wonderful time to be grateful and remember the fallen. Let there be Peace on Earth.

No, Christmas is not a wonderful time to be grateful and remember the fallen soldiers.

It is a time to be grateful and rejoice for the birth of our Saviour!

Christmas is for all ages. I think it's totally appropriate. Let's not forget the true meaning. Children need to realize this.

I agree. I was at a recent Christmas Parade and saw this float. I do believe it is a great tribute and I am glad we would like to keep our thoughts and prayers with all military families during the holiday season (and any time of the year for that matter). But I also have a small child who was in attendance and thought that it may be a bit too much. Parades, floats especially, are generally oriented as entertainment for children. I felt personally this was a bit grim. During a time when we are there to enjoy ourselves and have a good time, you have to explain to your child what it represents. At some point you will have to explain this to them and the situations in which our country is involved, I just did not expect to at a Christmas parade. At the same time I understand there are people and families in attendance who may have lost a loved one to a war, or even just having a loved one away from home for the holidays. I don't want to come off as disrespectful, it just adds a different mood to the event.

In the Salisbury Christmas parade last year, there was ONE float that even mentioned anything about Jesus, the reason we have Christmas in the first place.
