Nassau launches poster project to remember the fallen from home this Memorial Day
Large groups will not be able to go to cemeteries or attend parades honoring the fallen this Memorial Day weekend because of the pandemic, so the Nassau Legislature announced a different way of celebrating.
The Legislature announced a poster project where people can print out a poster online and display it in their home, whether it's on their front door, windows or in other places. The idea is similar to the recent rainbow project, where families posted rainbows on their homes in support of health care heroes.
The Nassau Legislature joined with Boy Scouts, Girls Scouts and veterans to announced the initiative, asking those involved to tape the poster to the upper-righthand portion of their doors.
"It will just make the soldiers who passed by or veterans ... it will make them feel like they're special and remembered, especially during all this," says Girl Scout Faith Stallone.
The poster, which is adorned with several American flags, and reads "All gave some, some gave all" and "Honor and remember - Memorial Day 2020" can be found HERE.
