LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending the Town of Highlands, New York, in
conjunction with the Village of Highland Falls and the United States
Military Academy at West Point, upon the occasion of hosting its Memori-
al Day Parade and Ceremony on May 27, 2013

WHEREAS, Each and every city, town, village and hamlet within its
borders proudly resonates with the rich and noble history of New York
State and this Nation; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to recognize and
commend events which symbolize the historical, social and cultural
development of this great State and embody the spirit of the principles
upon which this Nation was founded; and
WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its long-
standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to commend
the Town of Highlands, New York, in conjunction with the Village of
Highland Falls and the United States Military Academy at West Point,
upon the occasion of hosting its Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony on
Monday, May 27, 2013; and
WHEREAS, At this fine event, the 175th Anniversary of the West Point
Fire Department will also be recognized; and
WHEREAS, New York State was the first state to formally recognize
Memorial Day, then known as Decoration Day, as a holiday to honor our
fallen veterans; Memorial Day is not a celebration, but rather a day of
taking time out for remembrance, as characterized by our ancestors who
observed the day by taking time out to remember family members and
neighbors who lost their lives in the Civil War that divided our nation;
and
WHEREAS, As we remember our deceased veterans, we also recall their
brave and noble deeds, that in the more than 200 years of our country's
existence, have served to maintain our most precious freedoms; now,
therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend the Town of Highlands, New York, in conjunction with the Village
of Highland Falls and the United States Military Academy at West Point,
upon the occasion of hosting its Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony on May
27, 2013; and be it further
RESOLVED, That copies of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the Town of Highlands, the Village of Highland Falls, the
United States Military Academy at West Point and the West Point Fire
Department.
