Verona Memorial Day 2017Sgt. Frank G. Wittenweiler, Electrician’s Mate Arthur J. Anderson, Lt. Gerald Daly Geoghegan: They spent their youth in Verona, but never got to grow old here. All three died in service to their country, in conflicts from World War I to World War II and Vietnam.

The three young men will be among the names you hear read at the Memorial Day ceremony in the center of Verona on Monday, May 28. You can learn more about the life, and death, of each on a website created several years ago by Verona resident Rob Caruso,  Verona’s Heroes. His research became the basis for the street signs that you see on many intersections in town, which mark where these men lived before their service. The signs were unveiled in the 2015 Memorial Day Parade, which you can watch again below.

This year’s Verona Memorial Day parade will begin at 10 a.m. at Everett Field, and march west on Bloomfield Avenue to the Civic Center. A ceremony will be held on the steps of the Town Hall at the conclusion of the parade.
