NEW YORK – U.S. Navy Sailors and Marines marched in the 78th annual Glendale-Ridgewood Memorial Day Parade as part of 2016 Fleet Week New York (FWNY), May 30.

Sailors attached to USS Bataan (LHD 5) and Marines attached to 2nd Marines Division, 3rd Battalion, 6th Marines H&S Company volunteered their time to show support for the annual event.

“For me, this parade means a lot,” said Glendale native and Army veteran Ernie Watkins. “It’s a way of remembering the people that we lost, and when you have this parade and have people come out to cheer you on, it’s the greatest thing in the world.”

Local members of the community such as Boy Scout Troop 327, Girl Scout Troop 4204, and the U.S. Navy Armed Guard Cadets, and others organizations marched with service members during the hour-long parade that began at the Glendale Monument.

“We saw many veterans around while marching in the parade,” said Marine Corps Sgt. Jordan Ivy. “It’s a great day to remember all the veterans and service members who made the ultimate sacrifice, and I had a great sense of pride representing the Marine Corps.”
