Some gave all: many reflect on vets’ courage

If you love freedom, thank a vet.

The valor of Brooklyn war heroes was delivered a tall salute during a memorial service presented by Corrigan-Kiernan Memorial Post 8160, which also recalled the supreme sacrifices of 9/11 victims.

The 61st annual commemoration drew community-wide officers and veterans, who joined forces with borough patriots at an assembly outside the post quarters, 1265 Prospect Avenue, where our defenders of freedom were ceremoniously honored with a gun salute, the playing of Taps and a wreath placement.

The occasion also marked the post’s 63rd anniversary.
