Story and Photos by Ex-Captain Steve Grogan

 Under rainy skies, the Lynbrook Fire Department, its firefighters, Ladies Auxiliary, and Junior firefighters, led by Chief of Department John Chavatte, held its annual Memorial Day services at the Firefighters Memorial at Sunrise Highway and Earle Avenue.   Also present were the mayor and other local officials, and elected officials from the town and county.  Members of the Lynbrook American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars were also present.  During the service members of Truck Company and Hose Company placed wreathes on four stone markers for four firefighters, two from each company, who were killed in action in World War II.   After the service everyone proceeded to Village Hall steps for the official 2016 department photo.  Additionally, members of Tally-Ho went to the Doughboy Monument near the LIRR Station to lay a wreath on the stone marker of their Ex-Captain Jeffrey L. Wiener killed in Iraq on May 7, 2005.
