Each year for Memorial Day, Mohegan FD comes together and remembers those who have fallen. The week prior to Memorial Day, members gathered and visited the area cemeteries and placed FD memorial flags at the graves of our former members. This is to show our appreciation for their service to this organization and respect to their families. On the morning of Memorial Day, we had members gather and visit 4 locations to pay homage to our nation's veterans. The first stop was to Maple Ave/Chapel Pl in Cortlandt followed by Oregon Rd/Donnelly Pl opposite St. Columbanus Church, also in Cortlandt. Boy Scout Troop 45 also attended this service. Once these wreath placing services were complete, members traveled to Roe Park located at Rt 6 and Locust Ave in Cortlandt to place another wreath. Once complete, members then visited the Shrub Oak Memorial on East Main St near the John C. Hart Library in Shrub Oak to place another wreath. This is our dept's way to pay respect to our veterans. At each location, members placed a memorial wreath, played taps, and saluted the monument that bares the names of community residents who lost their lives serving the United States of America. At the conclusion of the services, members gathered at Headquarters where breakfast was served. Photos are courtesy of FF Gus Stretz.
