American Legion Post 304 Announces Memorial Day Parade Plans
James R. Russell, commander of the Manhasset Post 304, American Legion and John F. Keitz, parade chairman, have announced the parade order and schedule for the traditional Manhasset Memorial Day Parade, and for the attendant memorial services. All Manhasset residents, their families and friends are invited to join the Legion in this remembrance of the great sacrifices of American heroes. The theme of the parade this year, "Spreading Freedom," is a reminder that members of our military are currently engaged in preserving our freedom from terrorists as well as protecting fledgling democratic societies from insurgents who would take away their freedom. In particular, we honor the members of the 301st Area Support Group, 77th Regional Readiness Command from Fort Totten, New York, which Post 304, and indeed, the entire Manhasset community has adopted while they are deployed in Iraq. Memorial Day is a reminder of the ultimate sacrifices made by previous and present generations to preserve this freedom. We must never forget what they did and why they died.
