Westhampton Beach honors local veteran

As part of the Westhampton Free Library’s Hometown Heroes program, local and state officials, friends and family came to honor William Matthews, a Merchant Marine and Navy veteran, in a ceremony at the Westhampton Beach Fire Department. Legion members and Westhampton Beach officials said Matthews was instrumental in helping to keep the village’s American Legion post active at a time when its membership was dwindling.
