2017 Wantagh Independence Day Parade

On the morning of Wednesday July 4th VFW Post 9592 was bustling with activity as the members readied themselves and their equipment for the Wantagh Independence Day Parade.  Our Color Guard Sergeant, Robert Spicer, made sure the flags, ceremonial weapons and accessories were all loaded in the van and ready for transportation to the step off point. Members of the Color Guard checked and re-checked their uniforms ensuring a professional and military appearance for the parade.  As the small contingent of representatives of Post 9592 waited word to move out some of them could be found enjoying the quietness and serenity of a beautiful summer morning.  The skies were blue with some clouds and the sun was shining. The light breeze, low humidity and comfortable temperature made this and ideal day for a parade.

0900 hours time to load up and depart. The Post 9592 team filled the van or their privately owned vehicles and made their way to the location in Wantagh where the other groups of marchers were staging. Upon arriving at the assembly point they were met by a few more members of the Post. It was here that the Color Guard Sergeant gave out formation assignments. Normally the formation is led by the Commander. However, on this Fourth of July Commander Matthew DeGregorio was in Philadelphia enjoying his brand new Granddaughter. Today the Levittown VFW would be led by the Senior Vice-Commander Peter Stasinski and President of the Auxiliary, Pat Norcerino.   Behind them was the Color Guard consisting of three flag bearers flanked by two weapons personnel.  Quartermaster Rich Hensl proudly carried our nation’s colors and was accompanied by Junior Vice-Commander Kerin Howard who carried the POW/MIA Flag and Al Mancini who carried the Post flag. Flanking the standard bearers were past Commanders George Doll and Jim Flynn, who executed the M1 rifle movements with expert precision. Also present in the Color Guard was Chaplain John Turino. To the right was Robert Spicer who kept the unit in step and orchestrated all formation movements. Behind the Color Guard were members of the Post and Auxiliary and bring up the rear was the Post Van.

At 1000 hours the parade stepped off with VFW Post 9592 the fourth unit to proceed. They were fortunate enough to have a marching band behind them that assisted them in the rhythm of the march. As was mentioned before the weather was just about perfect and as a result the parade route was lined with hundreds of spectators.  The colors of Red, White and Blue were everywhere, a fitting display for such a wonderful celebration.

With the parade behind them, this small band of dedicated members retired back to the Post and continued to celebrate Americas 241stBirthday with the traditional food of the season – Hot Dogs. Kerin Howard, Peter Roach and few others made sure this 4th of July delicacy was available for all to enjoy.

VFW Post 9592 sends a big Thank You out to all the Members and Auxiliary who participated in this event.

Happy Birthday AMERICA!!!!!!!!!!
