2021 Waynedale Memorial Day Parade #5

The "Veterans For Earned Healthcare" art car at the 2021 Waynedale Memorial Day Parade.

The car was created by Richard Robinson, a local veteran who has campaigned to keep the Fort Wayne VA Medical Center open. The Department of Veterans Affairs has considered closing it as a cost-cutting measure. The car is covered in signs demanding better healthcare for veterans, American flags, POW-MIA flags, crosses, and signs listing the awards the car has won. A mannequin dressed as a soldier sits in a wheelchair atop the car.

The car's name comes from Mr. Robinson's belief that veterans have earned the right to free healthcare by their service to the country.

The annual parade runs north along Old Trail Road, from Waynedale United Methodist Church to the Prairie Grove Cemetery, in the Waynedale area of Fort Wayne, Indiana.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
