Today we honor the dads, the men who work so hard to provide for their families, the guys who coach and cheer us on, who let their little ones dance on their shoes, and play silly pretend games....
We honor the dads who choose to serve our country all around the world, who can't be home for the barbecues and the hugs...
We honor the men who choose to become step-dads, or adoptive dads, and throw themselves into parenthood with open hearts and arms...
We honor the dads who have passed on, and we remember them with love...

The United States Army Parachute Team, known as the Golden Knights, dazzled at today’s Jones Beach Airshow.
In addition, we are proud to announce that this elite group honored one of our own, Ex-Chief James Harrison.
From 2003 through 2019, Ex-Chief Harrison was known as Sgt Harrison of the NYS Park Police. It was in that capacity that he coordinated the airshow every year.
The United States Army Golden Knights bestowed upon Sgt James Harrison a baton, in recognition of his many years of exemplary service.
Congrats, Chief! Another job well done!

A note about Memorial Day, from Hose Company 2 member Tom Christ:

Started after the Civil War and first known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day is the one day we set aside each year as a solemn day of mourning to honor and remember those soldiers who have fallen in service to our country in the pursuit of freedom and peace and while defending our Nation and its values. Over the years the true purpose of Memorial Day has faded. Many of us think of it as just another three-day weekend or the start of the summer barbecue season. Parades are sparsely attended and proper flag etiquette is forgotten. Some people mistakenly think the day is for honoring anyone who died and others think it is a day to honor all veterans. This is not their day. While we should always honor all veterans, Memorial Day is set aside specifically to remember those who died in service to our country and pay them homage. To include others blurs the focus that should be on those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and dilutes the significance of that sacrifice.

In 2000 the National Moment of Remembrance resolution was passed to help re-educate people of the true meaning of Memorial Day. It asks that at 3:00 PM local time, all Americans pause for a moment of silence to remember those who gave all. This Memorial Day, we should all take a step back and remember its true meaning. There are few of us whose family or friends have not been touched by the tragedy of war and we all benefit daily from the immeasurable sacrifices of our soldiers. At three o’clock, take the time to pause for a moment to remember and thank those who sacrificed everything so that you could live as you do. It takes very little effort to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
