Detective John Falcone was remembered today in a memorial ceremony at the Poughkeepsie train station. Thursday marked the fifth anniversary of his death. He died heroically in the line of duty after saving the life of a young child.
The upcoming blood drive at the Italian Community Center in Poughkeepsie will of course help to replenish blood supplies in the Hudson Valley. But, this drive will also commemorate the life of one of Poughkeepsie's finest.
