Parades were held across the North Fork Monday to commemorate Memorial Day.

Observed every year on the last Monday in May, the national holiday remembers men and women killed while serving in the Armed Forces.

Hundreds lined the streets in Mattituck, Southold, Orient and Greenport as local veterans, fire departments, students, scouts and other community groups marched in the streets.
