From Mon May 25, 2009 3:00 am to Sun May 31, 2009 2:59 am (included)
Please take a moment and read the information below.
We think that this is a great idea and would like to work with Staten Island students to do the same to honor Staten Islanders who have died in the service of their country.
Where to Turn would like to coordinate this effort.
If you know of any school that would like to get involved please let us know.
Also if your organization or group would like to participate please let us know.
It would be great to get this together for next Memorial Day.
(As we pause on this Memorial Day to remember those who gave their lives for our nation - here is an example of a remarkable tribute in memory of the men and women who served our nation.)
Remembering the War Dead

It was few Memorial Days ago that Anthony Buccino looked at the names of the young men on the Nutley memorial and felt ashamed that he didn't know anything about them.
He has since made sure that no one else in town has to wonder about the stories of the fallen.
Along with his daughter Andrea, Buccino assembled an online honor roll--complete with full biographies and photos-- for servicemen from Nutley and Belleville who died serving their country, some dating back to the American Revolution. Both are also available in book form, which you can get from Buccino's main website .
