Community remembers its country’s servicemen

Seaford American Legion Commander Bill Hoehn stood behind the lectern along with many fellow members. Community members had filed in to sit in chairs laid out on the front lawn of the post. The American Legion’s chaplain Charles J. Wroblewski had led a prayer where all who attended bowed their heads in respect and in remembrance.

“This post has been here since I was little, I used to live down the road,” said State Sen. John Brooks, who attended the event. “I think it is important that we remember everybody who put the uniform of this country on, and I think this is the way that it should be: A small community getting together to remember.”
