Honoring Our Veterans



The Queens Veterans Day Parade was held along Metropolitan Avenue and was well attended by veterans and civic leaders. The November 8 parade marched from 80th Street to Christ the King HS near 68th Street. This year’s Grand Marshal was Brigadier General and Commander of the New York Guard Stephen Bucaria. The New York Guard is a state volunteer force, which augments and supports the New York National Guard with manpower and skills. The parade was dedicated to the memory of US Army Private First Class Le Ron A. Wilson, who was killed in action in Baghdad, Iraq on July 6, 2007. State Senator Joseph Addabbo and Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley, as well as City Comptroller Scott Stringer joined in the festivities saluting the brave men and women who have fought and continue to fight for the nation.
