A TRIBUTE TO OUR LOCAL HEROES
by Mary Jane Miller
Once again Beacon Woods residents paid tribute to our local Veterans, the ones still living here, as well as the ones we remember from our past celebrations. Each of these gallant men has his own story.
There were veterans from each service Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard. Each was introduced as they carried into the auditorium their division flags and were wearing hats that were to be used in the solemn empty chair ceremony.
After each flag presentation, the veterans seated in the audience were asked to stand for acknowledgement from all the attendees.
One of the flag carriers was Gene Fuller, Vietnam Army Veteran. Gene is the recipient of three Purple Hearts, two bronze stars and two Air medals, all of them with V’s. He walked point guard in Vietnam. He has participated in all of the nine years of tributes taking place on Memorial Day in Beacon Woods.
Earl Alley is a veteran of the World War ll. He was a Private First Class in the Marine Corps when he witnessed the American Flag Raising on Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima. Private Alley saw service all over the Central Pacific area and received the Bronze Star and the Presidential Citation for meritorious achievement in action against enemy forces. On the day following our ceremony, he was flying to Washington, D.C. to be part of a tribute there.
Our Navy Vet was Jack Dandrea. Jack enlisted at the age of 18, served as a torpedo man on the USS Noa during the Korean War 1952-1956. He is a retired New York fireman who also served in the US Coast Guard Reserve.
Carrying the flag of the United States Coast Guard was Ron Hubbs. Ron is a US Army veteran, who served in Counter Intelligence. He is the former President and current member of the Board of Directors in Beacon Woods

Monies are also used to purchase items for the patients such as arts and crafts.
