Port Washington American Legion Post No. 509, has selected World War II Marine Corps Veteran Martin (Marty) Kramer to be the post’s grand marshal for this year’s Memorial Day Parade.

Marty enlisted at the age of 17 in 1944.  Deployed to the Pacific Theatre he was wounded on July 1 on the Island of Guam and received medals and ribbons which are now in a drawer at his home.

When told he was going to be this year’s Grand Marshal he stated ”My time in the Marine Corps was quite memorable and I would certainly do it again”

Marty currently lives in Manhasset with his wife of sixty-seven years Margot.

On Monday May 29  at 10:00 AM, plan to watch the parade, which begins on Campus Drive, proceeds down Port Washington Boulevard and Main Street to the Sousa Memorial Bandshell.

The parade will be followed by our Memorial Day Commemorative Service at the Bandshell.  All are welcome to attend.
