We also remembered those deceased members whose names we did not receive.

In addition, we remembered and shall never forget those who died on 9-11-2001, 53 Emergency Medical Service Providers and the countless Firefighters, Police Officers, Port Authority Officers, Court Officers, K-9 officers, Clergy and Civilians who perished that day. Last but not least, we remembered all our military personnel who gave their all in the pursuit of Freedom and those who continue to fight for our freedom.
