POTTSTOWN PA – Local veterans, family members and parishioners of St. Aloysius Church in Pottstown paid tribute Sunday (Nov. 10, 2013) at the church’s new cemetery on Buchert Road in Lower Pottsgrove to American men and women who lost their lives during battles in service to their country, in a ceremony that prefaced the arrival of Veterans Day on Monday (Nov. 11).

Prayers and blessings for those who were lost, as well as those who survived and returned, were offered during the half-hour ceremony that featured a bagpiper, a gun salute, and the playing of “Taps” by twin buglers.
