The community came out on Saturday to remember the sacrifices of military veterans past and present for Veterans Day services at Patchogue’s Four Corners.

The services were hosted by the United Veterans Organization of Patchogue, which includes the VFW Post 2913, American Legion Post 269, and AmVets Post 111.

Below are photos from the morning, which also involved the unveiling of a mock-up of the Lights on Patchogue stones.

The stones honoring local veterans will be placed at the foot of the village’s 88 lampposts. Click here for a map and for more info.
