TULSA, OK -- The Junior ROTC group from Union High School is back marching on Sooner soil Thursday.

The cadets represented Oklahoma in Tuesday's inauguration parade in Washington, DC, and performed in front of 2 million spectators along the parade route.

But for Josh McCool, the most important faces in the crowd were those of President Barack Obama and Josh's father, who marched alongside the cadets.

"Dream come true," Josh McCool said. "I mean, what else can you ask for? It's a moment in history I can never replace and got to do it with my father.

The Union cadets were one of 96 entries in the parade, chosen from 1300 that applied.
