Greenpoint Remembers 9/11

BY Jeff Mann

On Wednesday, around 50 Greenpointers, veterans, family members and neighbors, gathered at the St. Stan’s American Legion Hall to remember the horrific events of September 11, 2001. Led by St. Stan’s Commander Rick Kenney, the evening included a candlelight vigil, a chilling minute-by-minute account of the attacks read by Past Post Commander John Pieprzak and a video memorial of the collapse of the World Trade Center along with the city’s rebuilding effort. The Legionnaires paid tribute to our first responders and our country, ending the service by joining hands and singing along to Lee Greenwood’s “G-d Bless the USA.”
