Garwood Hosts Veterans Day Ceremony and Memorial Dedication

For the first time in at least 3 years Garwood held a ceremony to mark Veterans Day on Friday. Garwood officials used the day to dedicate the borough's new Purple Heart Memorial at Georgiana Gurrieri Memorial Park. The Purple Heart is awarded to members of the armed forces, or their families, when a service member is wounded or killed. Garwood doesn't typically hold a ceremony to commemorate Veterans Day. To those who have served: A Sincere Thank You.
