Freinds, relatives elected officials and the Post 19 Honor Guard were in attendance as Veterans Services Director Jay Weaver unveiled the new street sign recognizing the O’Leary Brothers for their dedicated military service to their country.

Alderman Sullivan, Alderman Mary Jo Rossetti, State Rep. Denise Provost and Alderman Bill White were in attendance and honored the three heroes at the street dedication for the O’Leary Family.
