Without Verona’s traditional parade, Memorial Day was a bit smaller this year. But it was no less somber, as Verona’s Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts placed flags at Verona’s Doughboy monument while Mayor Jack McEvoy read the names of the fallen.

You can watch the service in the video on MyVeronaNJ.com’s Facebook page and learn about the Veronans who were remembered once again from the list of names below. You can also remember the fallen as you take a walk around town: In 2015, Verona  installed commemorative signs honoring each of them at intersections around town.
