Oath Keepers March in Mid-Hudson St. Patrick’s Day Parade March 12, 2017
New York Oath Keepers:
The promise of an original poem about Ireland opened Kate Malone’s heart to open the door to the NY Oath Keepers to march in the 2017 Mid-Hudson St. Patrick’s Day Parade, and celebration of the 100th Birthday of our NY State Police! Thanks to John Wallace’s coordination efforts, and in spite of frigid mid-twenty temperatures and biting winds, we were well-represented by 18 wonderful Oath Keepers and a GREAT photographer! 6 from the Columbia/Albany area, 10 from the Orange County Chapter, and 2 from Bergen County.
The warm reception and brotherhood we felt from the State Police, the NYPD, Local Police, and Sheriff’s Department, made the freezing cold much easier to bear. Sheriff Carl Dubois actually walked our ranks to personally greet and shake the hand of every single Oath Keeper. According to one of my clients who happens to be a former parade Grand Marshall and current board member, political groups…were denied permits to march. You won’t see anything but American Flags, Shamrocks, Irish colors and smiling patriotic faces in the many wonderful photographs taken by Lois Dysard. We made a lot of friends and handed out our Oath Keeper cards all along the parade route. The poem that got us there [is posted below].
