Memorial Day 2009, North Kingstown, RI
Monday, 25 May 2009, was observed across the nation as Memorial Day, where all Americans would pause to remember those who had made the ultimate sacrifice for their country, whether in war or peacetime. NCBC Sea Cadets were proud to march in the annual Memorial Day Parade in our host community of North Kingstown, setting off on what was to be a stunningly beautiful morning. The Cadets led the blue division in the parade, which stretched to over a mile of marchers, floats, bands and vehicles from beginning to end. Following the parade the Cadets traveled to the Quonset Davisville Navy Yacht Club, where they assisted the membership in opening the boating season with a flag raising ceremony and POW/MIA remembrance appropriate to the day.
