LOCAL VETERANS HONORED AT MILITARY APPRECIATION BREAKFAST

Military Appreciation Breakfast

The Word Community Church in Northport hosted its second annual Military Appreciation Breakfast on Saturday to pay homage to local veterans.

Rob Moore, an elder at the church and program chairman of the events, says the breakfast is important to recognize the people who are fighting and have fought for our freedom.

“We feel like it’s very important to continue to remember our veterans,” Moore said. “Because of our veterans, what we have in America, freedom is not free and they fought so that we can have freedoms that we enjoy today, so we think it’s very important to continue to remember those things and to honor our military in this way.”

World War II veteran Alfonso Romanello received a special salute during the event.
