Memorial Day – Monday 05/29/17 as always Troop 37 will be Handing out Flags at the Staten Island Memorial Day Parade on Forest Avenue along the Parade route just prior to the start of the Parade. Look Sharp “Class A” Uniform. We will meet at 11:20 AM at the NE Corner of Forest Avenue and Hart Boulevard. Bring a water Bottle. We need your help we have a couple thousand Flags to hand out. We are usually done at 1:00 PM. Pickup location upon completion will be at Chase Bank 1480 Forest Avenue – between Marianne Street and Livermore Avenue

To many, Memorial Day, the federal U.S. holiday that takes place every year on the last Monday of May, is just another excuse for a three-day weekend. It’s also known as the day that marks the official start of summer and as a day devoted to getting great deals at the mall. However, the true meaning of Memorial Day goes far beyond barbecues and mattress sales.

The holiday began after the Civil War, and at that time was known as “Decoration Day.” While it was originally founded to honor the soldiers who died in the Civil War, today, Memorial Day is a day to honor all of the Americans who have died in military service.

Americans should take a moment from their day of celebration and leisure to reflect on the brave sacrifices of those who have given their lives for this great nation

And I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free. And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me.
