In East Hampton Village, not only will veterans march Thursday morning at 10 in a short parade organized by the Everit Albert Herter V.F.W. Post 550, but they will also be honored with a longer parade organized by the village on Saturday morning.
"This year we're getting two parades," Brian Carabine, a Marine veteran and commander of the V.F.W. post, said on Tuesday.
The parade will set out from near the Presbyterian Church and proceed north on Main Street to the memorial green by Hook Mill. There, retired Marine Corps Maj. Conlon Carabine will be the guest speaker. He grew up here, served in Iraq, Afghanistan, and many other postings during his military career, and now lives in Illinois.
