BRIDGEWATER, NJ - Despite the threat of rain, the American Legion in Bridgewater held its annual Memorial Day parade down Old York Road Monday to honor those who gave their lives for the country.

American Legion members, township officials, girl scouts and the Bridgewater-Raritan High School marching band marched down the road, followed by fire trucks and EMS vehicles from the different rescue agencies in town.

The parade ended at Ardmaer Field, with a special ceremony at the American Legion memorial that included comments from Assemblyman Jack Ciattarelli and Mayor Dan Hayes.

"Today, Memorial Day, is our nation's most solemn day of remembrance," Hayes said in his speech. "Throughout America today, communities gather to pay tribute to those brave men and women who sacrificed their lives and their futures in service to our country."

"In our turbulent times of geopolitical unrest, the world can seem more dangerous than ever," he added. "We must be ready to meet every challenge to our shared values of freedom, liberty and prosperity. And so we are honored by, and grateful for, those who continue to answer our nation's call."

A number of organizations, including all the township fire departments, placed wreaths at the memorial.
