Mt. Kisco Remembers on Veterans' Day [PHOTOS]

Veterans honored at annual gathering.

Dozens turned out Sunday for Mount Kisco's annual Veterans' Day remembrance ceremony, honoring those who fought and served in America's wars.

The ceremony included a color guard of local American Legion members, along with the Legion's Ladies Auxillary and Sons of the American Legion.

As an example, Mayor Michael Cindrich, who is a Legion member, described what the World War II generation of veterans faced.

“Some made the ultimate sacrifice and they are remembered today, along with the returning veterans," he said, noting that those who came home helped to build the country's economy.

Michael Polumbo, a member of the Sons of the American Legion, read the poem "Heroes" by Jared Jenkins

“Our veterans were more than soldiers. They were, and still are, heroes," he said in reciting the poem.
