Everyone here in the neighborhood knows the beautiful war memorial that stands in the center of Carroll Park, but few take the time to read the long list of names on the two bronze plaques attached to the side of the monument, commemorating those Carroll Gardeners who died in the service of this country.
This Memorial Day, let's take a moment to remember Franky Manning, Joseph Milori, Pasquale Muscillo and their comrades . Read on:

Memorial Day Ceremony In Carroll Park
Monday, May 29th – 11:00am

It is a day to honor our nation’s war dead.  It is a day to honor our veterans. It is a day to pray for the safe return of all those presently serving in our military. Join us as we honor their sacrifice
and as we place a wreath at the war memorial monument.

I went to thus ceremony almost every year. I moved to Riverdale as it was too expensive to stay in my beloved Brooklyn. I missed a tribute to those who served in the wars and couldn't find anything in my new neighborhood. Such a shame.
