(Page 3 of 3)

Kevin Canty, right, commander of the VFW post in Lynbrook, told the school board that its “no” vote tarnished the image of the village’s motto: “Lynbrook USA.” Ex-commander Pat Cardone, left, wanted more involvement in the process.

School boards across the state also voted on the Gold Star Parent Exemption, a tax exemption for homeowners whose sons or daughters have died while serving in the military. East Rockaway passed the default exemption of $20,000, although Colvin said there are currently no Gold Star families registered in the district.

Lynbrook, which has one Gold Star family, denied the resolution on Feb. 26.
