Once again, this year we participated in the Pearl Harbor ceremonies down at the Newburgh waterfront. A number of dignitaries and Veterans groups were on hand to remember our comrades. Click on the pictures below for a larger view.

Dec. 7th, CWV Post 386 took part in the annual Pearl Harbor Day ceremonies down at the Newburgh waterfront. Wreaths and flowers are tossed into the river in memory of that “date that will live in infamy”. Here are some pictures from the ceremony.
Our thanks to the Blu Pointe Restaurant for their generous hospitality before the ceremonies.

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Ceremony
Members of Post 386 attended Marlboro High School’s annual Remembrance Ceremony on Dec. 3rd. All veterans were invited to the program followed by refreshments.
Past Commander Joe Farina is pictured here with
the day’s guest speaker, Major Alphonso Savage of
the United States Marine Corps, who spoke about some of the Medal of Honor recipients. Some of the students read poems and a recitation of the names of some of our ships was done.
Our thanks to the students and staff of Marlboro High School for putting on a wonderful program. We look forward to attending again next year. And as usual, Joe enjoys these functions. He’s always surrounded by the pretty
girls wherever we go. “What’s your secret, Joe? How do you do that?”
