Hero Next Door

An exhibition, “The Hero Next Door – Local Stories of Courage in Wartime” was presented in the spring of 2010.  It featured, in part, a collection of personal stories of more than 70 Bronxville, Eastchester and Tuckahoe men and women who died in the service of our Country in World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam. The popular exhibition, curated by local historian Michael P. Fix, was held at the OSilas Gallery at Concordia College and brought people of all ages together to commemorate our fallen soldiers. Their stories can be read here.
