Duty, honor and country—that is what Memorial Day means to the staff at St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center in Smithtown. Veteran staff from all branches of the United States Armed Forces, joined together to remember heroes lost in service for the county we all live and love—America—the land of the free and home of the brave. Memorial Day has become the unofficially start of summer, a time to gather together with family and friends, but more importantly, it is the dedicated national holiday to remember those who made the greatest sacrifice with their lives on the frontline—the brave.
To commemorate Memorial Day on the campus, St. Catherine of Siena enlisted the help of local Boy Scouts from Troop #163 of Smithtown. Boy Scouts Spencer Borghardt, Nicholas Rocco, Andrew Spiro, Corey Kaiser, Matthew Cuccia and Joseph Rocco, placed flags on the campus, Wednesday, May 23, in time for the national holiday. The flags are a reminder that Memorial Day is a time to honor fallen men and women, who served in the five branches of the Armed Forces, including the Army, Navy, Marine Corps., Air Force and Coast Guard.
As you enter the campus at St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center and see the many flags along the driveway and main circle—take a moment to remember the fallen heroes for their bravery this Memorial Day.
