Long Island honors Veterans Day
Long Island is honoring Veterans Day today.
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 395 led a parade in Saint James through the heart of the hamlet, up the intersection of Lake Avenue to Saint James Elementary School.
Flags were flying in a colorful display of patriotism and remembrance in Mount Sinai. A ceremony at Heritage Park included flags from every state, the colonial period as well as local flags.
A work of labor and love was unveiled in Kings Park. Girl Scout Troop 408 dedicated a new railing on the ramp entrance to the local VFW post. The fifth-graders sold jewelry for months to pay for the project.
The scouts are already working on other projects for the VFW and American Legion.
Long Island has one of the largest veteran populations in the entire country.
