May 29, 2017, 11:00 AM - 11:30 AM @ LaRosa Boys & Girls Club
The LaRosa Boys and Girls Club has a longstanding tradition of honoring 11 members who died during service in Vietnam. The club displays what is thought to be the longest-standing Vietnam memorial in the state of Pennsylvania.
A monument along Ravine Street bears the names of Norman Wallace Johnson, Michael Joseph Nemchick, James Francis Brooks Jr., Tyrone Gregory Burse, James Edward West, Gregory Francis Popowitz, Curtis Taylor Gay, Thomas James Sweeney, Louis Howard Huff II, John Alan Germek Jr., and Lee Daniel Thomas.
“Sam LaRosa felt it was important to honor our kids who were killed in Vietnam, and we are proud to carry on that tradition,” director Jim Barry said. “Our service has not changed since the 1960s, and a lot of the families of these young men attend every year.”
