Old Glory Boat Parade

Themed "Let Freedom Ring", the American Legion Yacht Club set sail once again around Newport Harbor for their annual Old Glory Boat Parade.  American Legion Post 291 member and former assistant to the President for National Security Affairs, Lt. Gen H.R. McMaster (Ret) was named Grand Marshal.  Old Glory was a huge success this year.  We had over 70 boats creating a parade over half a mile long.  We hosted over 50 active duty servicemen and women and their families aboard our VIP vessels and member boats.  It was a day not be be forgotten.
