FREEHOLD, NJ – The Freehold Regional High School District NJROTC is pleased to once again, have participated in the annual Freehold Memorial Day Parade. An enthusiastic crowd along the way showed their appreciation as the unit performed unarmed and armed exhibition drill, in addition to basic drill movements. The unit was led by a nine-man Color Guard that honored the contribution of all our armed services. With approximately 100 cadets in attendance, each member of our contingent marched over one and a half miles around the town of Freehold, striving to represent not only our unit but also our fallen service members. Joined by veterans, esteemed citizens of Freehold and the Freehold Police and Fire Departments, our unit is honored to enjoy the opportunity to participate each year in such a poignant and important tradition, helping to honor those who died in active service to our country. Our unit remains committed to commemorating our veterans not only on special occasions like Memorial Day, but throughout the year, and we will continue to participate in numerous events to honor those who gave their lives in service of our nation.
