The Hicksville community lining the streets of Hicksville for the United Veterans of Hicksville’s annual Memorial Day Parade and ceremonies on the morning of Memorial Day to pay tribute to those men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice – their lives – in order to protect the principles of the United States.
This year Arlene Howard was selected at the Grand Marshal.
The parade stepped off on Broadway, heading south to Old Country Road. At the Hicksville Middle School the parade procession and hundreds of residents and guests gathered at the school’s Veterans Memorial Park for a brief ceremony to honor the war dead.
