With Memorial Day Weekend 2019 now only days away, it's always good to remember the true meaning behind the holiday.

Yes, beach season is here, but it's also a time to remember the men and women who have sacrificed their lives in service to the country.

With that in mind, this Thursday, May 23rd, don't be surprised if you look up and see helicopters dropping parachutists from the skies above the Shore.

Eagle Oaks Golf & Country Club in Farmingdale will be hosting their 11th Annual Honor Day, which will include a demonstration from the All Veterans Group Parachute Team

The yearly event is a fundraiser for Hope For The Warriors, a charity that provides support services for active military, veterans, and their families.

You can get more information on Eagle Oaks' 11th Annual Honor Day by checking out their official Facebook page here.

 

 

Correction - An earlier version of this story identified the parachute team as the West Point Parachute Team. The West Point team participated in last year's event.
