Veterans of Foreign Wars Whitestone Post 4787 and Vietnam Veterans of America Queens Chapter 32 remembered those who served in World War II during a D-Day ceremony Friday at the Whitestone Veterans Memorial Field.

Veterans gathered at the site, top, with Councilman Paul Vallone, second from left, and state Sen. Tony Avella, right, to pay tribute to those who fought during the crucial battle 70 years ago and their comrades at arms in the war.

Welcome to the discussion.
