Atlantic City Remembers Local Veterans at Brown Park

Last Edited:

Veterans Day is this weekend and many across South Jersey observed the holiday on Friday to honor local veterans in our area.

On the morning of Friday, November 10th, Atlantic City officials held a Veterans Day observance ceremony at Brown's Memorial Park to honor and recognize the sacrifices of local veterans, active duty military members, and their families.

Officials say the Veterans Day observance gives everyone in the community a chance to thank the brave men and women for their service and show them our appreciation for all that they have done.

"It's important that we not only remember them on Veterans Day but every day, and this is just a symbolic activity to make sure that people know that we have not forgotten our veterans here in Atlantic City," said Kaleem Shabazz, councilman of Atlantic City.

Today's Veterans Day observance included a brief program and prayer for veterans of all wars and conflicts from all branches of the military.
