Honoring veterans in Massena
Thursday, November 7, 2019 - 1:53 pm

Patrick Frary of Phillips Memorial Home, and grandson of World War II veteran Louis R. Salamon, has been cleaning headstones and memorials around Massena so they will look their best on Veteran’s Day, Nov. 11. Monuments at VFW Post 1143, American Legion Post 49 and AMVETS Post 4, are among those he has cleaned. “I find it an honor and a civic duty to remember those who have gave the ultimate sacrifice,” he said. The task is “just one of the ways I can give back to our community and reinforces what a true honor it is to belong to a grateful nation.” Photo by Frank Besaw, Massena..
