West Point – Highland Falls 4th of July

Highland Falls, the home of West Point has invited the Gathering of Eagles to participate in their Fourth of July Parade. The Mayor and citizens have taken note of our staunch support for the graduates of the military academy these past two years and have come out and joined us on the street at those events. If you can, join us to celebrate Independence Day at West Point, the home of the U.S. Army.

    Hello, My dad is a WWII Vet. He was awarded the Bronze Medal, as well as, the Silver Star. Last August Dad came to live with us in Monroe, NY and attended the Memorial Day Services in our town. I could not believe the pride I saw in his eyes as he watched the men, women and children walk in that parade. He saluted every time he saw the American Flag. We met a Gulf War Vet at that parade and he mentioned after speaking with my dad, that it may be great to have him attend the parade at West Point on the 4th of July. My dad is anxious to go. He has his West Point hat and all his medals on it to show.

    He is 88 years old and does have a heart condition. I was wandering if there are provisions for someone with his condition. We would love to have him attend this parade. I know it would mean the world to him. My e-mail is annarose80@optonline.net. I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks
