Brook­lyn re­mem­bers Queens County veter­ans

The Queens County Advance - - FRONT PAGE - BY AETHNE HINCH­LIFFE

The sun peeked through the clouds ever so slightly at an early Re­mem­brance Day cer­e­mony at the ceno­taph in Brook­lyn, Queens County, on Nov. 5.

Af­ter the cadets marched in and took their places, the cer­e­mony com­menced with the singing of ‘Oh Canada,’ fol­lowed by the hon­our rolls of the First World War, Sec­ond World War and the Korean War.

“They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old: age shall not weary them, nor the years con­demn. At the go­ing down of the sun and in the morn­ing we will re­mem­ber them,” said Bill Cox, read­ing from the poem For the Fallen, by Robert Lau­rence Binyon.

The lay­ing of wreathes came next, be­gin­ning with the Nova Sco­tia wreath. Each one was placed in front of the ceno­taph.
