There is no place like Cody, Wyoming for the 4th of July. People start lining their chairs up right after the parade is finished on the 3rd. Our small town doubles in size on Sheridan Avenue during the parade on the 4th. It is an exciting time topped off with lunch at The Irma and the Bagpipers playing 'Gary Owen'.

The State War Memorial is located in Cody, Wyoming. There is a World War II Memorial, Korean War Memorial and Vietnam War Memorial. This Memorial Day there was a special ceremony to dedicated the World War I memorial, Powder River Let ‘er Buck, the battle cry of Wyoming troops. An insignia was designed of a bucking horse and was worn proudly on the uniforms of the Wyoming troops. There was a decal for all Wyoming vehicles. This bucking horse was the beginning of our State emblem that is now on our license plates. Govenor Matt Meade was on hand to help with the dedication.
