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.
Ben’s grandmother, Patricia Jenkins, and Ben’s parents, Amy and Patrick Moore.
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
