During WWII a parade of well-trained soldiers was marching through downtown. The soldiers were trained and now preparing to leave for war.

As they marched by one old lady's house she was so proud of the men. She grabbed her broom stick, placed it on her shoulder and started marching right beside the handsome men in uniform. Someone shouted from the crowd, "Old woman, you can't go to war with them!"

The old woman said, "I know I can't go, but I can let the boys know who's side I am on! I can support them!"
