On Dec. 12, Bruce Patterson, along with Megan Roche, presented a local history book to the Denville Public Library. Roche was contracted by the Denville VFW Post to organize each member’s history and record of service. Each veteran has his own two page spread in the book, complete with information on medals and awards, photos, and stories of their service. The book begins with World War II Veterans and ends with many who are currently serving. The book is available to be checked out at the Denville Public Library. The project took about a year and a half. The book is titled “Denville’s Heroes: Post 2519’s Stories of War”.
“As someone who has a passion for veterans and those who serve our country, I was really excited to get to have the opportunity to sit down with some of our nations heroes and write about their experiences during times of war and peace. I truly hope that with this book, none of their stories will ever be forgotten.” Roche said.
