From parades to a ceremony aboard the Intrepid, New York pols honored veterans for their service on Memorial Day.

At a wreath-laying ceremony Monday aboard the aircraft carrier, Mayor de Blasio said “the first obligation we have is to remember those who were lost. … Our next obligation is to support all those who came back.”

At a Little Neck, Queens parade, Gov. Cuomo said the day was “bittersweet.”

“It’s nice to have a day where we all come together and we remember what we’re about fundamentally, and the democracy and the freedom that makes America America,” Cuomo said.
