The Memorial Day Parade in Hoboken {A Photo Essay}

Written by:

What does Memorial Day mean? It isn’t just about barbecues and sunshine. Memorial Day is a day that we should stop and think — about our country, the sacrifices made by those who have lost their lives, and of course — the brave men and women that continue to serve it. Think about it. The hardships and struggles that men and women have endured to make this world a safe place for everyone {and still continue to do}. Soldiers are some of the bravest people I know, and true heroes — called to serve, without a question and it is an honor to be in their presence. Here are some photos from the Memorial Day Parade in Hoboken {taken by Will Ferman}. To all the veterans and servicemen and women and those who have lost their lives: thank you for your service.
