February 6 , 2017 Carmine DiPasquale______________
Commander Bill Aguilar Honors Treasurer Carmine DiPasquale, This Bronze Statue is the first of its kind to Honor a DAV Member, The Statue represents not only the integrity of this Member, but his loyalty to serving not only Veterans but the community. I don't know if an award of this kind will ever be presented again. Carmine a left over member of the Yonkers chapter which was in mist of dissolving for lack of membership.
Carmine signal handily took it upon himself to salvage Chapter 16, he refused to see the negative, he believed that Chapter 16 could not only survive but flourish.
Carmine Met with Greenburgh Town Supervisor Mr. Paul Fiener and expressed his desire to have a change of venue to the Greenburgh Town Hall and it was granted.
Chapter 16 is the only active chapter in Westchester, our meetings has now flourish with many new active members, Carmine has gone above and beyond in obtaining donations as well as refreshments for meetings. Carmine had several dignitaries come our meetings, such as Angela Stewart-cousin and Veterans Director of Westchester County Mr. Ron Tocci. Mr.Tocci was so impressed that he joined our Chapter 16 and is now an active member.
Chapter 16 hopes to attract more veterans. Our main goal is to help other Veterans as well as the community.
