School Honors Vets and Ben Moore-Bordentown, NJ Photographer-The Register News

At Bordentown’s MacFarland Intermediate School, they held a special Vet’s Memorial Service.
Part of the service was our local Girl Scout Troop worked together to receive the Bronze Award. This award is for doing a certain number of community hours. They decided to create a special memorial for Ben Moore, who was killed over in Afghanistan earlier this year. They planted a Red Oak in front of the school with a plaque to honor his memory.Some of these images were published in The Register News, one of the many papers published by http://www.centraljersey.com.

Amy Moore comforts Emily Albrecht. “Her father, MSG James Albrecht, is active duty Army, currently stationed at Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands. She misses him a lot! I think meeting Ben Moore’s family made her appreciate what her father does for our country, and how lucky she is that he has survived Kosovo and 2 tours in Iraq.” -Corinne Agins Troop Leader, #25132

 

PFC Ben Moore Comes Back Home To Bordentown, NJ

I live in a small close tight community in a small town. The kind that still remembers who lived in which house after they house was sold three times since.
I was there to photograph the escorted motorcade back home. I was there to capture images for Hope Hose Humane #1, the fire house he belonged to and also to welcome him home and bid farewell. The more I read about him from his family and friends, the more I wished that I had known him.
