Bohemia, NY - June 15, 2017 – Suffolk County Legislator Bill Lindsay recently attended Bohemia Fire Department’s Memorial Day Commemoration Ceremonies, where he presented a proclamation to The Joseph Kovarik American Legion Post 1146 for their service to the residents and community.
 
The Joseph Kovarik American Legion Post 1146’s building on Hubal Street in Bohemia was built primarily by Legionnaires. The construction that began in 1940 was dedicated on September 21, 1941 and named for Joseph Kovarik; a World War I veteran that passed away in an elevator accident in 1927.
 
Post 1146 was honored by the Bohemia Fire Department with the Edward E. Krepela Citizen of the Year Award for their continued contributions to the community through education of our military history, honoring and memorializing our veterans, and being staunch advocates for local veterans in need.
 
“Those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom deserve our unyielding gratitude” said Legis. Lindsay. “This gratitude is shown in the turnout at the ceremonies year in and year out. Despite the rain, Veterans, families, firefighters, EMS professionals, friends, and neighbors all came out to stand in honor of those who made the ultimate sacrifice in order to protect and save our country.”
