While I grew up in Bellmawr, my father Stanley was very active in the Brooklawn American Legion, and because of this Brooklawn was like a second hometown to our family.  Ever since I was born, we've attended the Brooklawn Memorial Day services to honor the soldiers of Brooklawn and the country... who served us all... and too many giving the ultimate sacrifice to protect us, our children, and our way of life.

My mother, brother, and I were there like everyone else to honor our greatest Americans, and we were also honored to present a wreath honoring my father Stanley.

The Brooklawn service is an emotional one, and the recently added 9/11 Memorial remembering those who lost their lives associated to the 9/11 tragedy, and honoring the first reponders who risk their lives every day... made it even more poignant to realize why we need to honor and respect those who risk their lives everyday, by them putting our lives first.
