On Veteran’s Day, Wednesday, November 11, 2015, at 11 a.m., American Legion Post 99 held the community’s annual Veteran’s Day Ceremony at Veteran’s Memorial Park located at Kearny Avenue and Beech Street. The Kearny Police Honor Guard and members of the American Legion, VFW and Marine Corps stood at attention at the monuments. The program included words from American Legion Commander Keith McMillan and Mayor Alberto G. Santos, a prayer, the reading of the poem “In Flanders Fields” and the playing of taps. Joined by Town Council members Carol Jean Doyle, Susan McCurrie, Rich Konopka, Marytrine DeCastro and Albino Cardoso, many Kearny residents also came out to pay their respect and recognize the many Kearny men and women who have served our country in the United States Armed Forces.
