World Flyers Participate in
Defense Day Parade

Daily Report

by Lt. L. P. Arnold, "Chicago", Mechanic

We all were at Bolling by 12:30 overseeing the preparation of the planes. At 1:15 we took off, flew over Washington to Arlington where we dropped flowers on the grave of the Unknown Soldier, proceeded back over town & then back to the field.

Upon landing we jumped into waiting cars & proceeded to Peace Monument where we joined the parade. The reception and applause given to us all along the line of march was wonderful -- and to be so received by our own people thrilled us all. It was probably the greatest moment in our lives & never again will we reach as high a pinnacle.

At the Ellipse we dropped from parade & joined the group reviewing -- President & Mrs. Coolidge, General Pershing, many generals, and others. Following this we went to office & made final plans for departure tomorrow
