Our Veterans Day grand marshal honored


On Nov. 9, residents and elected officials packed the streets of East Moriches to honor the sacrifice and service that our brave veterans make on behalf of all Americans, at the Moriches Veterans Day parade.  Cpl. Jean Littman served as the parade’s 2021 grand marshal—the first woman veteran to hold the honor. Littman, a 90-year-old Korean war veteran, served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 1952 to 1955. Her responsibilities were vast and many, beginning with a role she held driving the motor pool at El Toro, Santa Anna, Calif. During her brave service in the Korean War, she was awarded the National Defense Medal and the Good Conduct Medal.
