Thanks for show of support

On behalf of the membership of Morris J. Edwards American Legion Post No. 168, St. Johnsville, I would like to thank everyone for their show of support during the Memorial Day parade and attendant ceremonies.

We are grateful to everyone who lined the parade route and gathered in Soldiers and Sailors Park for the ceremonies. Every year it is wonderful to see generations of families showing their respect, care and commitment for our members, while sharing in our memories of those we have lost.

I would also like to comment on the outstanding turnout by my brother and sister veterans. Senator Paul Tsongas once said, “America is hope. It is compassion. It is excellence. It is valor.” Each and every one of you exemplifies that. I applaud and am proud of your service to our community, our post and our nation.

God bless you all as he continues to bless these United States.

ANTHONY SUSI, commander

Morris J. Edwards American Legion Post No. 168, St. Johnsville
