JNEWS: McCourt, Joe [MC1967] May 30 Memorial Day Parade Grand Marshall



Vietnam Veteran Joe McCourt Named Grand Marshal of Fanwood-Scotch Plains Memorial Day Parade
March 29, 2016 at 5:00 PM

*** begin quote ***

SCOTCH PLAINS-FANWOOD, NJ – On May 30, neighbors of both Fanwood and Scotch Plains will line the streets for the beloved Memorial Day Parade, where the honorary duties of grand marshal will be handled by Vietnam veteran Joe McCourt.

Despite being a member of the parade committee since 1992, McCourt had never assumed the role of grand marshal until now.

“We had a meeting and I stepped out to the men’s room and when I came back I was the grand marshal,” McCourt said jokingly. “Back in October, Mayor Glover asked if I had ever been the grand marshal and I said no, and then they voted and here I am. Quite an honor, quite a thrill, that’s for sure.”

A Brooklyn native, McCourt enlisted in the Army after graduating from Manhattan College in 1967. After attending Basic Training and Advanced Training at Fort Dix in New Jersey, he traveled south to Officer Candidate School at Fort Benning in Georgia.
