PIERMONT, N.Y. -- More than 100 people turned out Sunday, July 17, to pay their respects to the eight police officers who lost their lives during recent attacks in Dallas and Baton Rouge, La. The vigil was hosted by the Piermont Fire Department at Flywheel Park, according to Lohud.com.

During a ceremony that was attended by everyone from residents to firefighters and police officers, a 50-foot-by-30-foot American flag was hung from the ladders of two fire trucks as those gathered stood for 20 minutes of silence, said Lohud.com.

Piermont Fire Chief Daniel Goswick opened the ceremony with brief remarks before clergymen offered words of comfort and those gathered sang along with the National Anthem as they held candles, added Lohud.com.
