Marines Storm Playland Again, Sunday

[headline corrected, program is Sunday.]

The US Marines will storm Playland again this Memorial Day, just like last year (see pictures and video) and years past. If you have not been, it's an impressive sight.

Here is the advisory from Rye PD:

"On Sunday, May 27th, between 2:00 P.M. and 5:00 P.M., “Armed Forces Appreciation Day” will be held at Playland. A Memorial Day ceremony will be held, after which U.S. Marines will perform a live demonstration. Helicopters will perform an overhead sweep before landing outside the Edith G. Reade Sanctuary, and a group of Marines will disembark to secure the “landing zone” and set up a perimeter.

There will also be a search and rescue demonstration.

After the demonstration, the helicopters will be available for public display along with the weapons typically used by a Marine Corps rifle platoon.

We are calling just to alert residents that this activity will be occurring in the vicinity of Playland, and that there is no cause for alarm. The helicopters and ground activity are just a demonstration, and part of a tribute to the men and women of our armed forces."
