GOSHEN -

Orange County is remembering local military members who died during World War I.

Forty soldiers from the area died during the Battle of Hindenburg Line in Northern France on this day in 1918 -- 99 years ago.

Veterans from all over the county gathered at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Goshen to pay their respects.

Christian Farrell, director of veterans services for Orange County, said, "It's a day that we remember the sacrifice that 40 Orange County residents, 40 men, made. They laid down their lives for their country. Far, far from home. And that sacrifice continues to be done today."

World War I ended almost two months later on November 11, 1918.
