Memorial Day Tribute: Local War Heroes Bring it Home Generations Later

 

LARCHMONT/MAMARONECK– For ten years,  8th Grade Hommocks Teacher Richard Darcy has been bringing World War II veterans into his classroom to speak about their experiences. Ron Robina, Frank Ippolito, Anthony Marsala and Richard Cantor (nephew of Richard Kemper of the Kemper Memorial in Mamaroneck) speak very personally about loved ones lost, and have the students read the poetry and letters they wrote during the war. Ronald, one of the very first veterans Darcy had speak in 2003, brings original helmets (both German and American), military jackets (from WWII and his father’s from WWI) along with personal photos, maps, newspaper cutouts and more for the kids to pass along and try on. Frank brings in artwork made during the war, one of which was a pen and ink drawing in Japanese style, though they were fighting the Japanese. Anthony brings in a picture of himself and two brothers, his older one died in combat at age 21.

Science Olympians at Hommocks

Bragging rights from a proud mom:

Shameless science stage mom here…My son, Ian, and his friend, Michael Hyams,  students at Hommocks, won medals at the Hudson Valley Regional Finals of the Science Olympiad last week!  They are in 6th grade, and they placed 5th in their category “Reach for the Stars.” Just passing it along in case it sounds interesting to you.  (It’s a big deal to us, but I totally get that it might not be to everyone else, really!)  Thanks for all that you do. Thanks, Cathy. Congrats to Ian and Michael!
