    Women’s History Month – Looking for World War II Female Veterans

    Sayville’s American Legion and VFW Posts will be conducting the 10th Annual celebration of Women’s History Month in Sayville at Florence B. Evans Park on March 28, 2015 (rain date-March 29, 2015) at 11:00AM.

    The American Legion, Post 651 will be recognizing Female Military Veterans and they hope to create a new ceremony this year by recognizing World War Two Female Veterans from the communities of Islip Town.

    These women are well documented in the Town of Islip Archives.

    The American Legion Post needs the community’s assistance! If you know of these Female Veterans, please contact the Post.

    Pictures and newspaper clippings of the women veterans who will be honored are posted below.

    If alive, these women will be in their 90s and, possible, still residents of Sayville, West Sayville, Bayport/Blue Point. Families of these veterans would be honored as their representatives and may call or email Fred Hinze, American Legion Post 651 Post Historian  (631) 220-9750 or catsupman@optonline.net with information.
