Local veterans, Boy Scouts and public officials gathered Nov. 11 at DeSanti Plaza in Hartsdale for the unveiling of a refurbished monument honoring those who fought in World War I.

The black granite stone inlaid with a bronze plaque earned Thomas Sassalos III his Eagle Scout badge. He worked with veterans Hugh McAuley of Scarsdale’s American Legion Post 52, who served in the Navy from 1972-76, and Carmine DiPasquale of DAV (Disabled American Veterans) Chapter 16 to bring the restored memorial to fruition. Both men are members of the town of Greenburgh’s Veterans Advisory Committee.
