November 11, 2016 — The Conservancy Marches In America’s Parade

We’re proud to announce that our New York Chapter carried on the tradition of participating in the New York Veterans Day Parade, also known as America’s Parade. They marched up Fifth Avenue to honor the brave individuals who served our nation, and to commemorate the SS United States’ proud career as a peacetime flagship liner always ready to serve her nation if duty called.

Thank you to our New York Chapter Co-Chairs Paul Stipkovich, Glenn Lappin and Carl Weber for leading the SS United States Conservancy’s contingent, as well as to Lloyd Burket, Ralph Casado, Eric Fahner, Jaye Maynard, Fred Rodriguez, Rita Sharkey, Mike St. Amour, Eileen Wangner, and to all the chapter members, family members, and supporters who gave their time and enthusiasm to the event. The generosity and dedication of all involved made it possible to represent the SS United States with bright, festive conviviality.

To all our nation’s veterans and active-duty service members, we salute and thank you!
