Community Gathers to Commemorate Veterans Day
In a service held each year at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, the Levittown/Island Trees Veterans Council, along with Levittown community members, took a few moments to remember the sacrifices made by veterans and current soldiers in the past and today.
Keeping the Memory Alive
Since the tragedies of Sept. 11, 2001 and the war in Iraq, the significance of Veterans Day has taken on new meaning. Nowhere this more prevalent than at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow.
