One Minute on Bayonne Memorial Day Co-Grand Marshals

Jun 4, 2009
Floor Statement

Thank you, Mr. Speaker. 

I rise today to honor two very distinguished women for their service in our armed forces.  Victoria Del Regno served in the U.S. Air Force from 1969 to 1972 and Isabella De Marco served in the U.S. Army from 1993 to 2004, and is currently an active duty reservist.   Both women were selected as Co-Grand Marshal’s for the Memorial Day Parade in Bayonne, New Jersey in my district.  Ms. Del Regno and Ms. De Marco were both born and raised in Bayonne, served as nurses in the military, and both are members of the F-A Mackenzie American Legion Post #165 in Bayonne. 

Mr. Speaker, for the first time in the ninety-one year history of the parade, two females were selected by the parade committee to serve as Grand Marshals.  I am proud that this year’s parade honored the service of women in the armed forces.  These two women and their contributions are outstanding examples of women serving and that have served in our military.  Thank you, and I yield back.
