John Basilone Parade
On Sunday September 19 we Marines from the Slattery Det had the honor of
doing the IWO flag raising for the John Basilone parade.
On behalf of the John Basilone Parade Committee, the Borough of Raritan, Lt
General Ronald Coleman and Lt General Richard Zilmer our sincere gratitude
and thanks to everyone who made the parade so spectacular.
The 40th annual John Basilone Parade was just outstanding. Perfect weather,
a great line up, packed streets, and honor and respect for John and all of
our veterans. This is your parade. Thank you to everyone who participated
and made it happen.
Backpacks For Life
On Friday we had the honor of help backpacks for life with their golf outing
Backpacks For Life's mission is to provide a unique and personalized support
system for homeless and at-risk veterans who are struggling to reintegrate
into civilian life. We want Veterans of all eras, after being equipped with
the right tools and solutions, to seamlessly and confidently reintegrate
into society and thrive. Through our two main programs, we are able to
effectively support and empower our Veterans, reigniting the flame to live
and succeed inside of them.
