BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The American Legion in Bridgewater held its annual Memorial Day parade Monday to honor those who fought and gave their lives for our country.

The parade traveled down Old York Road and ended at the memorial at Ardmaer Field, with Rep. Leonard Lance, R-7, and Mayor Dan Hayes speaking to the crowd and wreaths being placed at the memorial by groups including the fire companies, Bridgewater Township, Cub Scouts and more.

"On behalf of Bridgewater's 44,000 residents, I extend our thanks and respect to the families of those who have fallen in service to our nation," Hayes said. "The commitment we share in supporting the men and women who comprise our military remains steadfast and true. We will continue to honor as hometown heroes those who never left the battlefields, and, as the nature of battle evolves, and our ability to save wounded soldiers increases, we must secure the resources needed to meet their needs."

"Let's live in gratitude each and every day for the previous gift they have given to us," he added. "And, let's challenge ourselves and each other to demonstrate our gratitude through dedicated and purposeful engagement in the democracy for which they gave their lives."
