I was saddened to hear that the second annual Veterans Day Parade that was supposed to take place on Nov. 2 in Levittown was canceled ["Veterans," News, Oct. 26]. This parade was going to honor our World War II veterans.
Nov. 2 is a Sunday, and the parade was to begin at Gardiners Avenue and Hempstead Turnpike, and end at the Levittown Veterans Memorial Park. Apparently, St. Bernard's Church was concerned about the noise and inconvenience to its parishioners during services.
The number of World War II veterans is dwindling. The veterans who might have been honored this year may not be with us next year.
