WESTFORD — Friends, family and supporters gathered at the Veterans of Foreign Wars building for a ceremony in honor of the late Sgt. William J. Woitowicz.

The event was held in honor of Sgt. William J. Woitowicz, a Marine and Groton resident who tragically lost his life while serving in Afghanistan.

Over a decade after his passing, the American Legion Riders presented two Purple Heart plaques to the parents of Woitowicz at the Westford VFW.
