Remembering the 9-11 “Day of Infamy”
                     By Peggy Godfrey
                          The flag hung
                       conspicuously     on
                       the New rochelle
                       armory      Building
                       on September ll and
several rows of Firemen and officials
stood closely by. units from the Police
department and armed Forces were
also present. The President of the united
Veterans of New rochelle, Peter Parente,
set the tone of the evening by saying this
was “very much a moving event,” and it
was organized to “never forget” the tragic
events of 2001 to the Twin Towers, in
Pennsylvania and Washington, d.c.
Thanking various people who cooper-
ated to make this remembrance possible,
