Military Couple Wins Brecknock Hall Wedding

GREENPORT: Susana Andrade and Justin Abbey, a U.S. Army couple, are the winners of the Brecknock Veterans Day Wedding Giveback. Hosted by Peconic Landing, a lifecare retirement community in Greenport, the contest awards a free wedding at historic Brecknock Hall to a deserving military couple. In addition, community sponsors and vendors will provide various services for the day. The wedding will take place on Veterans Day, Sunday, Nov. 11.
Susana, a California native, is an E5 Sergeant with a FAA Certificate for Air Traffic Control.  Justin, born and raised in Southold, is an E4 Specialist who is working toward becoming a Black Hawk pilot. The two both enlisted in 2009, and they met during special training in Alabama. They were engaged on July 20, and their tour of duty in Afghanistan will begin early next summer. Both have already earned several medals for their service.
This is the second consecutive year that Peconic Landing has hosted its wedding giveaway for military couples. “We’re committed to being good neighbors, and this initiative was inspired by the fact that many of our residents are veterans,” said President/CEO Robert J. Syron.
Applications were reviewed based on local residency, active duty or recently returned from service, number of tours, one or both members of couple in service, special circumstances/honors and the couple’s overall story.
