Glassboro will host their annual Memorial Day parade on May 27, 2019, at 10 am.

“As a proud veteran myself, I am continually humbled by the stories of valor I hear from our veterans,” said Council President George Cossabone Sr. “Join us for our annual tradition where we remember those who went to war and gave the ultimate sacrifice for each of us to live free.”

The 177th Fighter Wing’s motto is “Community Based, Global Impact.” This will be the third time that Glassboro’s fallen will be honored by the NJANG 177th Fighter Wing. A flyover was approved in 2018, but was cancelled due to weather. “We are proud to honor our fallen heroes and those who have and are presently serving by supporting flyovers for events like this one in Glassboro” said Colonel Bradford Everman, 177th Fighter Wing Commander.
