It’s Memorial Day

Brooklyn Daily

Today is Memorial Day. Please take a moment to remember the men and women who died in the armed services.

Residents throughout the borough will be attending Brooklyn’s Memorial Day Parade — a 145-year-old march honoring fallen American soldiers.

Check out Brooklyn Daily tomorrow for a full run down of the parade and how Brooklynites celebrated Memorial Day weekend.

The 145th Annual Kings County Memorial Day Parade will kick off outside of Councilman Vincent Gentile’s district office [8703 Third Ave. between 87th and 88th streets in Bay Ridge, (917) 873-1508; www.brooklynmemorialdayparade.com] on May 28 at 11 am.

Jerry from Grand Army Plaza says:
Ok. Where to start? First off-I'm a vet-just so you know. Every year I'm reminded of how unpleasant my situation in war was by this highly annoying walk-a-thon. Is this going to bring my 2 friends back? Doubtful. Not one year has this worked for either one of them. We need to start worrying about the future and let sleeping dogs lye. On the flip side of this, not one day has gone by that I don't remember, and I don't think I'm alone here. I just this should not be a day off of work for everybody. There are more sophisticated ways (see Facebook/other online sources) to remember loved ones these days-all that can be quickly done at the office (on break).
