JWV, VFW Host East End Memorial Ceremony On a cold and windy Sunday, members of the Jewish War Veterans and the Veterans of Foreign Wars met at the memorial on Beach 9 Street and the Boardwalk to renew old friendships and to remember those who were no longer with them this year. The ceremony included remembrances of those who died serving their nation as well as those who died in the past year. Pictured, the permanent memorial that stands on the boardwalk at Beach 9 Street.
