Post 162 Leads the Hillsdale Memorial Day Service


The theme for this year was "Honoring The Revolutionary War Heroes Who Fought & Died On The Battlefields Of New Jersey, "  Senior Vice Commander Mike Gela was the Grand Marshal.  In addition to recognizing those who made the Ultimate Sacrifice while serving in our Military, we recognized Frank Gluckler for 75 years continuous service in the Legion.
