Conklin, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Local veterans were honored Saturday at the first Annual Inductee Ceremony in Conklin.

A large crowd gathered at the Conklin Veterans Memorial, located on Conklin Road, at noon.

Veterans stood beside the memorial while speeches were given and the crowd looked on in silence.

The memorial, which opened last November, honors veterans from Conklin, the Town of Binghamton and Kirkwood.

154 names were added to the living monument, meant to honor both living veterans and those who have been lost.

Each year, more names will be added.
