Students Revisit Woodhaven’s Garden of Remembrance

Cadets of the Franklin K. Lane High School Air Force Junior ROTC, led by Chief Master Sergeant Jose L. Silveira, ROTC Commandant, gathered at the Woodhaven Post 118’s Garden of Remembrance Memorial at 89-02 91st Street. The Garden of Remembrance is made up of more than 600 cemetery markers bearing crosses and the Star of David to represent the different religious faiths of Post members that have died since the Post was chartered in 1920. The Garden is intended to be a symbol of honor American servicemen and women who have died in Service to the United States of America.
