Crisfield Moves On From Sandy And Honors Vets

Posted: Updated:

CRISFIELD, Md. – The entire community of Crisfield put the devastation of Sandy behind them to honor the city's Veterans. Monday at the Elks Lodge, was a ceremony to honor those who served.

WMDT caught up with two of the hero's to share their stories.

Arturo Chavez is a first generation American, and has been a Marine for 24 years. He says it is the best thing that he has done.

"I'm a first generation America and I thought it was my job as a brand new citizen to serve the country," he tells us.

Then we met 93 year old Austin Cox. He is one of the few men still alive from his infantry. He raided the beach in Normandy during World War Two.

 "I'm so blessed because I feel that I can speak for my comrades who are not able to speak in their memory," he tells us.

The whole community pulled together to put on this celebration. Princess Anne and Crisfield Volunteer Fire Companies displayed the flag, students of Somerset Intermediate served the breakfast, and the Crisfield High School band and choir performed at the ceremony.
