Atlantic City held a Veterans Day observance ceremony Friday to honor all who served. The ceremony, which included city officials, veterans and members of the military, invited attendees to join in prayer at Brown’s Memorial Park. The gathering gave a special salute to Sgt. Harold R. Brown, for whom the park is named. He was the first African-American from Atlantic City to die in World War II.
