Roll of Honor in Center Moriches, Suffolk County (Long Island), New York

The following names are on the Roll of Honor at Main Street and Lake Avenue  in Center Moriches. They include those who served in World War I and World War II. Asterisks * mark the names of the men who were killed in action.

This is the town where my dad grew up. Many of the names on this list were his and his parents’ friends. Some of the people were his family members — uncle, grandfather, brother, cousins, future in-laws. I have included a few people who were not on the plaque who I know served. Their names are in [brackets].
