Pvt. Shawn Kargel, Staff Sgt. Christopher Benton, Sgt. Jerry Sanchez, Sgt. Carlos Auagaro and Pfc. Adam Stachnick of the 916th Support Brigade.

 
National Training Center and Fort Irwin Soldiers and leadership participated in the annual Old Miners Days Parade at Big Bear, Calif., June 14.

The 916th Support Brigade command team of Col. James Kazmierczak and Command Sgt. Maj. Donald Freeman rode in the parade and Soldiers of the unit served as a color guard for the event.

This year’s parade theme was “From Wagon Wheels to Smart Automobiles, Paving the Way to a Sustainable Future.” According to www.oldminers.org the Big Bear area has a rich history of logging, ranching and mining that has made it a historical treasure for California. With its numerous abandoned mines, ghost towns, romantic and notorious legends, heroes and villains, Big Bear takes to heart its past by celebrating it every summer through Old Miners Days. The parade is actually one event of several that will run through September. These events strive to bring history alive as residents and visitors take part in time honored and sometimes comical Big Bear Valley traditions and antics.

You couldn’t have an Old Miners Day Parade without … an ol’ miner and his horses.
