Tenney to host vigil for service members killed in duty in Afghanistan


Rep. Claudia Tenney, R-22, New Hartford, will host the community in a candlelight vigil at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 4, at the Fort Stanwix National Monument, 200 N. James St. in Rome, to honor fallen service members who made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in Afghanistan.

This includes those who served in Operation Enduring Freedom and subsequent missions, as well as the 13 service members who were tragically killed evacuating American citizens and Afghan partners last month, notes a release from her office.

All members of the community are invited to attend this event, the announcement adds.
