1. WWII Honor Roll
What a lovely monument honoring the veterans from Port Chester who gave their lives in WWII.

My father, Charles J. Domaszewski, who will be 96 years of age in December 2011 is a WWII veteran orignally from Port Chester, NY. He now lives in Indiana. Mr. Domaszewski returned from the army on October 13, 1945 with 13 other soldiers. I remember seeing an article at one time, from the Port Chester newspaper published in 1945 titled, Lucky 13 return on the 13th, listing their names, etc.

At one time, probably as far back as the early 1960's I remember my father mentioning there was an honor roll constructed in one of the parks on West Chester Avenue listing all the names, including my father's, on a board of all the veterans from Port Chester who served in WWII. The honor roll was taken down many years ago. Does anyone have a photograph or know where i can find a record of this particular honor roll and the list of names? My father would very much appreciate reviewing the list in his advanced years. As a true veteran, he would want to continue to remember, honor and pray for all those that served with him from the community. Any information would be welcome. Thank you.
