New York Guard Marches in NYC St. Patricks Day Parade

The 88th Area Command of The New York Guard (State Defense Force) recently marched in New York City’s St. Patricks Day Parade. Marked as one of the largest St. Patricks Day celebrations in the world, The New York Guard is invited every year to fly The Colors and join in on the festivities. The 88th Area Command history is based in midtown Manhattan and is descended from The Irish Brigade whose legacy dates back to The Civil War.

Here are some of the photos from The Parade:
