"What so Proudly We Hail"
Our 92nd Annual parade observes the 205th birthday of the poem that became The Star Spangled Banner, our national anthem
75 years since D-Day, the invasion of Europe that defeated Nazism, and the invasion of the first Japanese home island, Saipan, in the Pacific.
We also commemorate 50 years since 1969, when peace talks started in Paris
only days before the bloodiest week of the Vietnam War
Our featured branch of service is the United States Merchant Marine
underpinning our defense since the founding of our nation.
Thanks to our volunteers, sponsors and donors who made this day a success
