Vietnam Vets host holiday vigil


Westchester’s Chapter 49, Vietnam Veterans of America, will host its annual candlelight vigil Sunday at Lasdon Park for those who did not come home.

A procession will move along the Trail of Honor, where candles will be lit at each of the war memorials.tjndc5-5b1vv06rzv5zinm3gqo_layout (2)

The names of those who made the ultimate sacrifice will be read, and veterans will recite a few poems. There will also be a Christmas Tree on display in memory of the fallen.

The vigil is to begin at 4:30 p.m. and the public is invited. Lasdon Park is located at 2610 Amawalk Road (Route 35) in Somers.
