In the Spring of 1969, Sunbury held a "Loyalty Day" parade sponsored by the local VFW. Thirty to forty Susquehanna University students attended the parade with the intent of holding a sort of counter demonstration. The students felt that an individual's loyalty to their country should not blind them to what they see as the faults of their nation. Once there, students were greeted by police, fire engines with high pressure hoses directed at them , and onlookers yelling bitter profanity. The incident is described in this Crusader article.
