On Sunday, May 26th, Maspeth will remember and honor our fallen veterans. A story about the parade may be found under “Home is Where Your Heart Is”.
This WWII-era photo from the Library of Congress features Major Anthony J. Malankowski of Maspeth standing in the center. In April 1945, as liberated slave laborers waved and cheered, the Nazi commandant of the camp at Altendorf, Germany was led away to answer for the atrocities that occurred there. Private First Class Arthur Fields points gun on the right.
