HICKSVILLE VIETNAM WAR ERA MEMORIAL 
Dedication Ceremony
Please see the Honoring Our Veterans tab of this newsletter for a detailed report on the Dedication Ceremony, with captioned pictures, that was held this past Memorial Day, May 30, 2022.
Since Bill Walden and I were not able to be present, we want to especially thank John (Jay) Tranchina and Tommy Sullivan, for their presence and handling of the proceedings.
 
This project began 15 years ago with roughly 150 names for the Memorial and was expanded to over 1,900 names when the Memorial was built.  A Special Thank You goes to Adrienne Dolgin, a Hicksville alumna, who spent countless hours behind the scenes, with the help of the Hicksville Public Library staff, combing old microfilm articles for new names and details.
 
Also, a Very Special Thank You to our entire Memorial Committee, who contributed names for the Memorial, along with various ideas and other help.  In addition to the above mentioned alumni and this writer, they include; Bob Casale, Joe Ingino, Terry Wallace and two members, who unfortunately did not live to see the Memorial built; Carl Probst and Tony Plonski.
 
We also could not have accomplished this Project without the dedicated help and support of the HixNews editorial staff, for whom we are especially grateful.
Further information on the disposition of names submitted for the Memorial after its construction, along with plans for the final donation of any remaining funds to worthy Veteran's causes, will be published in future issues of HixNews.
On behalf of the Project Team,
 
Joe Carfora
HHS 1962
