Memorial Day: A Look Back At a Special One in Fort Lee
Add your Memorial Day 2012 photos to our gallery of last year’s festivities in Fort Lee, and let us know whom you’re thinking about today. This year's celebration starts Monday at 11 a.m. in front of Borough Hall.
Memorial Day is more than just a three-day weekend; it’s a time to reflect and honor those who have served our country, those who continue to serve and those who have been wounded in service.
Last year, the Fort Lee V.F.W. hosted a Memorial Day service honoring those brave men and women and also paid special tribute to the Fort Lee Fire Department for saving the V.F.W. from sure ruin during a fire in 2007.
Members of the V.F.W. unveiled a plaque dedicated to the fire department, which will now forever adorn the V.F.W.'s “Wall of Fame,” alongside the names and pictures of deceased members already on the wall.
In honor of Memorial Day 2012, we thought we’d take a look back at that momentous day in 2011 through the camera lens of photographer Donna Brennan, who captured the festivities.
