The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

 

A parade float built to replicate and honor our countries "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier" participated in this year’s 2017 Town of North Haven Memorial Day Parade on Saturday, May 27, 2017. The Memorial Day float was escorted from New Haven to North Haven High School located on Elm Street, North Haven, Connecticut by the Eastern Vintage Police Car Association, and we were honored to be given the privilege. The memorial float drew much applause, cheers and appreciation from the many parade goers in attendance. The official tomb, located in Arlington National Cemetery, is dedicated to those soldiers throughout history that have sacrificed their lives in times of war and died without their remains being identified. Following World War 1, a movement arose to commemorate these soldiers with a single tomb. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is guarded 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and in any weather by Tomb Guard sentinels. The Sentinels are all volunteers and are considered to be the best of the Elite 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), headquartered at Fort Myer, Virginia.

North Haven's parade started at the town's high school and proceeded east on Bailey Road, north on Maple Avenue, and continued on Church Street to the corner of Church and St. John Streets where the parade's grandstand was located. Many town officials were present to announce and celebrate the many parade participants and greeted everyone who took part in this year’s event.
