Eastbound and down. The Union High School Junior ROTC loaded onto two buses last night for the long journey to Washington D.C.

The Corp will march Monday in President Obama's second Inaugural parade. They will be Oklahoma's only entry into the parade.

While the squad marched four-years ago, this is an all new group taking part in this trip. The high school students were very excited as their parents filled out last minute permission slips and the medical wavier.

Member, Tyler Yarbrough,  says he is very excited to be on the trip  and is looking forward to telling this story to his grandkids.

Grandkids, we asked?

He was quick to add, "someday".
