A moving tribute to veterans of past wars and those currently enlisted was held this Veterans Day in North Bergen. The township’s ceremony was held in the Recreation Center on Meadowview Avenue, with at least 20 local veterans in attendance.
The Master of Ceremonies was North Bergen Commissioner Julio Morenco, who Mayor Nicholas Sacco dubbed the Captain. Also in attendance were township Commissioners Frank Gargiulo and Hugo Cabrera, Hudson County Commission Chairman Anthony Vainieri, members of the North Bergen Police Department, including Chief Peter Fasilis, and Michael DeOrio, Co-Director of the North Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue Management team.
A huge thank you to all veterans for serving our country and protecting the freedoms we all enjoy as Americans.
