Senator Toomey, others remember fallen heroes of Pa.

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - Veterans were honored Monday afternoon at a ceremony at Cedar Hill Memorial Park in Allentown.

A number of dignitaries were on hand for the event and U.S. Senator Pat Toomey served as the guest speaker.

Toomey said Pennsylvania is the birthplace and final resting place of many heroes, from the battles of Valley Forge and Gettysburg to the brave passengers of Flight 93.

"Pennsylvania has produced some of the greatest examples of courage and fortitude and heroism in the history of mankind. Our country and the world are safer and more free because of those Pennsylvanians," Toomey said.

Toomey said we also need to celebrate the men and women who are currently fighting to defend our freedoms.
