Search Underway for Brecknock Veterans Day Wedding Giveback Couple

The contest, which is hosted by the lifecare retirement community Peconic Landing, seeks to recognize and thank active duty military personnel and veterans by awarding a free wedding at historic Brecknock Hall to the winners.

The wedding is made possible thanks to an outpouring of support from 20 community sponsors including catering, entertainment, flowers, photography and much more. To apply, couples should submit their stories to [email protected] by Monday, August 5. Be sure to include information relevant to the following criteria: Local residency; Active duty or recently returned from service in Persian Gulf; Number of tours; One or both members of couple serving/served; Special circumstances/honors. Last year’s winners were active duty Army soldiers Cathrine and John Schmanski, who were married on 11-11-11 and are now expecting their first child.
