SOUTHERN OCEAN - The Barnegat American Legion Post 232 has a parade scheduled this morning. Lineup begins at 9 a.m at the Birdsall Street firehouse; the parade starts at 10 a.m. 

The Beach Haven Community Arts Program and the VFW Barnegat Light Post 3729 and Beach Haven borough will honor those who gave their lives in service of our country with a Memorial Day parade and ceremony today.  A solemn procession will begin at Taylor Avenue at 10 a.m., followed by a service at Veterans Memorial Park.

Be sure to drive by Southern Regional High School in Manahawkin and view the Field of Flags. The Field of Flags is a traditional tribute to service members who have lost their lives in the line of duty. ROTC students and English classes “plant” the flags in the lawn, creating a display easily seen by motorists passing by on Route 9.

Ship Bottom officials are honoring veterans with a Memorial Day service on the front lawn of borough hall at 1 p.m. today. Borough hall is located at 16th Street and Long Beach Boulevard.
