In a recent decision by the Rockland County Legislature, the LODD (Line of Duty Death) committee has received approval to begin the construction of a commemorative memorial on the Rockland County Courthouse lawn. This significant development was initially reported by Monsey Scoop last month.
This move by the Rockland County Legislature underlines the county’s profound respect and dedication towards honoring the brave firefighters who’ve laid down their lives in the line of duty. Such a memorial stands to be a powerful testament to their undying courage and the tremendous sacrifices they’ve made for the community.
The memorial is envisioned as more than just a monument; it’s a tribute to the indomitable spirit of those heroes who’ve shown unwavering commitment in the face of adversity. It aims to be a serene place where families, friends, and colleagues of the fallen can come together, reminiscing their cherished memories, and paying homage to their bravery.
Moreover, the monument will not only represent the valor with which these firefighters serve the community daily but also symbolize the community’s gratitude and appreciation for their selfless deeds.
The esteemed members of the ROCKLAND COUNTY LODD MEMORIAL COMMITTEE steering this project include:
– Evan Humphrey, Chairman
– Jason DiSalvo, Co-Chairman
– Sheriff Lou Falco
– Chris Kear
– Howard Gerber
– Frank Bifulco
– Mike Kramar
– John Erzen
– Brian Duddy
– Brian Ready
– Deb Stewart
– Frank Jewitt
Residents and well-wishers await with bated breath the completion of this significant memorial, which promises to be a beacon of honor and remembrance for years to come.
