Memorial Day Remembered

Written by Angelo R. Capobianco, Glen Cove Military Historian Friday, 21 May 2010 00:00

My first memory of Memorial Day is in my youth up in the Italian section of Glen Cove known as “The Orchard.” I knew something was going to happen that day when “Big Ralph” Mastalio put on his World War I uniform. I caught my first glimpse of the parade at the Glen Street Railroad Station. The railroad station is where the parade turned around to go back to Glen Street and end up at the Old Legion Dugout on Pulaski Street. I saw a Civil War veteran and many World War I “Doughboys” that day. Years later I marched in that same parade as a member of the St. Patrick’s School band and then in the Glen Cove High School Band. What impressed me back then and also today is that Glen Cove is a very patriotic city. There are monuments and streets dedicated to the memory of many servicemen in several of the neighborhoods. I also remember during World War II when GIs on leave would march in this parade. Do you remember the first parade after World War II when all the servicemen came home? They would march with trophies of their victories consisting of enemy helmets, rifles and flags. I remember one Marine who carried a Japanese machine gun on his shoulder; he made sure that when he captured this gun on Guadalcanal’s “Bloody Ridge,” he would own it. It took him seven duffel bags to pack it up and send it home to his mother; the late Burt Cocks was the Marine.

 ‘Cyberbullying’ Experts and Local Politicians Weigh In on a Growing Issue

Before the advent of the Internet, bullying occurred in the lunchroom, on the playground and even in the classroom. It usually involved a bigger child picking on a smaller child by calling them names or roughhousing. This type of behavior is manageable and can be dealt with immediately.

Now, bullying is broadcast on a much larger scale. It has taken the form of sentences and comprised words. It has turned into a blog-post, a video or a Facebook status update.
