Photos: Honoring the fallen soldiers at the Inwood parade


As marchers collected at the Inwood Long Island Rail Road station and then moved along Doughty Boulevard in the second Memorial Day Parade on Sunday in the Five Towns, their thoughts were with all the U.S. military personnel who died serving the nation.

The parade included the John J. Olivieri Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1582, the Inwood Fire Department, Lawrence High School’s marching band and the Our Lady of Good Counsel Mazza bans, along with groups representing the Five Towns Community Center and the girl scouts.

At the intersection of Mott Avenue and Doughty Boulevard, Post 1582 held a ceremony at the veteran’s monument. Military veteran Jerry Killane served as the parade’s grand marshal.
