"What an incredible experience! We were able to attend everything promised and more! The days were well thought out with back up plans ready as needed. I have never participated in a parade that began on time, continuously moved, and went off without a hitch. The kids enjoyed every minute of the crowd's reaction to Stars and Stripes Forever. The highlight of the trip for me was watching my students become young adults in such a small time period. The exposure to our Nation's history was truly an eye-opening experience for them. Being able to honor our fallen military and their families by marching in the parade was a very humbling experience that I know each and every student will never forget. Words cannot express how much I have enjoyed working with MCI. From day one, they worked diligently to make sure my job was easy as possible. I will most definitely be working with them again in the future!"
