We are as the Army of Helaman

Two of my sons had a chance to march in the Spanish Fork Fiesta Days parade as 2000 Stripling Warriors in the Army of Helaman.

They carried staffs and made their own flags as Titles of Liberty.  They were given costumes to wear.  The boys and men were ages 11-26 years old.  Some of their leaders walked with them.  They were divided by Stakes (you can see the tall white flags designating their group).

A vehicle was in their midst playing the Primary song We'll Bring the World His Truth (Army of Helaman) and the missionary hymn Called to Serve.  The boys would tap their staffs in time to the music.  Periodically they would stomp and give a chant and tap their staffs.

You can see my sons at about the 1:20-1:24 mark of the video I took.  Zane's staff has a white flag tied with black shoelaces.  Cooper should be near him.  (Sorry about some of the picture my hand was getting tired).
