Most people celebrate birthdays with cake, a few balloons, and a chorus or two of “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow.” But not these guys.
Soldiers from the US Army Garrison Fort Hamilton Recruiting Battalion joined Joint Task Force Empire Shield to clean up Shore Road Park on June 10.
Service men donned gloves, picked up shovels, and weeded until the cows came home to turn over a section of the green space from an eye-sore to a sight-for-sore eyes.
Col. Peter Sicoli, commander at the fort, and Sgt. Maj. Tony Stephens, command sergeant, were on hand to make sure the soldiers made it ship-shape and tidy.
The fort celebrated its 192nd birthday on June 11 and the US Army blew out 242 candles for its day on June 14.
Standing O says, “Happy birthday and thanks for the gardening.”
