Veterans Day Ceremony 2016 in Ridgewood, NJ

American Legion Post 53 sponsors a Veterans Day ceremony every year in Memorial Park at Van Neste Square in Ridgewood, NJ. It’s a well-attended event and something I look forward to attending whenever possible.

This year, the ceremony honored those who served in the Gulf War. As always, American Legion Commander Bob Paoli served some moving and thought-provoking words. Several speakers, including Ridgewood Mayor Susan Knudsen, shared some words and thoughts with a crowd which included veterans from our Army, Marines, Air Force, Navy, and Coast Guard, along with families, students, citizens and veterans.

Of course I took some photos to remember the day, and hopefully do a bit to honor those who have served.
