(FREEPORT, N.Y.) - Nassau County Legislator Debra Mulé (D - Freeport) joined community leaders and her colleagues in government to commemorate Memorial Day in Freeport on Monday, May 31. After marching from Freeport High School to outside the Freeport Memorial Library, Legislator Mulé took part in a commemorative service where she was invited to lead attendees in the National Anthem.
In addition to honoring all who lost their lives while serving in America’s armed forces, the ceremony included a special salute to the lifesaving contributions of medical first responders throughout the COVID-19 pandemic - a tribute that harkens back to William Clinton Story Post No. 342 matriarch Mabel Pauline Guest, whose work as a nurse during the 1918 influenza pandemic is enshrined in the memorial plaques at the Freeport Memorial Library.
“The memories of Freeporters and Americans who made the ultimate sacrifice while courageously serving in our nation’s military will live on forever in our hearts,” Legislator Mulé said. “I am thankful to Parade chairs Ricky Malone and Christene DiLeo, Post Commander Edward Martin, Jr. from William Clinton Story Post No. 342 of the American Legion, and our village, school, library and faith leaders for their contributions to this heartfelt and meaningful tribute to our hometown heroes.”
