Memorial Day Parade

WEST HAVEN, March 2, 2020 — World War II veteran Frank Corso and Korean War vet Salvatore Gullo will lead the city’s Memorial Day parade as grand marshals when it steps off at 10:30 a.m. Monday, May 25.

Corso, who served in the Army Air Forces in 1942-45, and Gullo, who served in the Navy in 1948-52, will guide the procession of veterans, dignitaries and bands along the 1 ½-mile parade course, which follows Campbell Avenue from Captain Thomas Boulevard to Center Street.

The parade has no rain date.

Corso and Gullo were tapped by the West Haven Veterans Council, which helps the city organize the annual parade, for their years of service to the armed forces, their fellow vets and their community, the latter of which is perhaps the cornerstone of the qualifications for grand marshal, council President Dave Ricci said.
