Veterans Day 2021

Posted: Wednesday, November 17, 2021

Philadelphia Municipal Court President Judge Patrick Dugan, who spoke earlier at the Korean War Memorial, addressed the ceremony’s theme of Standing in Brotherhood with the men and woman of Afghanistan and Iraq. The Memorial wants to involve more younger veterans from those wars. The newest Board member, Sergeant First Class Travis Senseny of the PA National guard, was introduced to attendees. Also attending was Kevin McClosky, who lost both legs below the knee in Afghanistan and delivered brief remarks. Joanne and Bill Malek were awarded certificates naming them to the Memorial Honor Roll for their work in promoting the Memorial panels listing the 648 lost in the war. More than 400 veterans and their family and friends attended the annual Veterans Day observance at the Memorial on Nov. 11
