As it has done every Memorial Day for decades, Howard Beach gathered Monday to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

Hundreds of people, including many veterans and active service members, paraded through Old Howard Beach under bright sunshine, stopping at the neighborhood’s memorials to those who died in World War II and the Vietnam War.

The event started with a Mass at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church and ended at Coleman Square, where the 41 Howard Beach residents who have died in wars since 1898 were remembered.

Welcome to the discussion.
