Honoring Military Service
Observing Women’s History Month in March, Veteran Gary Vertichio and Chris Bodkin were among the visitors in Mrs. Sue Hart’s Participation in Government classes to recognize one of Sayville’s own: Florence Evans, a Sayville graduate, who was a volunteer nurse in WWII and spent most of her military service on the frontlines treating the wounded. She was killed in France on the last day of the War. A monument (in a park behind Crickets in Sayville) honoring her was recently rededicated.
Two Sayville Seniors joining the military, Heather Bonamico (Navy) and Zack Cone (Marines) spent a moment after class with Mr. Vertichio.
Chris Bodkin, Veteran Gary Vertichio, and N.Y. Army National Guard Trinette Zizzo, S.F.C., from recruitment and retention, speak to Sayville High School students in Mrs. Sue Hart's Participation in Government classes.
