Asbury Park Honors Sacrifices of Armed Forces & Local Heroes
VFW members joined other veterans' organizations and elected officials to remember our war dead and honor the troops and veterans at the veterans' memorial on 5th Avenue in Sunset Park. The Asbury Park High School Band, led by Music Director Karen Schwartz, played tributes, Asbury Park's police and fire fighters stood by at attention.
Fire fighter Jason Fasio, barely visible in the long line of firemen, stood with his mates through the long cold, windy ceremony.
