Honoring Veterans in Northampton Township

Residents who Served and Saw Themselves in Harms Way

This video was produced on Christmas Day 2019 to pay tribute to the 91 Northampton Township Patriots who served in the military in designated hostile areas since the township’s Flag Program was established on April 23, 2003.  (Complete list is below)

The photos in the video are shown in the date order of presentations. I salute each and every one of them, especially the two heroes we lost, Army PFC Bob Dembowski, Jr. on May 24, 2007 and Army Master Sgt. Ken Elwell on July 17, 2011. May they rest in peace.
