On Saturday, April 30, 2022, Post Historian, Eugene E. Lowenberg, passed away and reported to Post Everlasting. He was a very nice man and was very active member of our Post.  He was our Post Historian and had a unique way of taking pictures for our Post Scrap Book.  He was very thorough with the Post Scrap Book and he enjoy his work with it, and one year he won an award from the Nassau County American Legion for his work with the Scrap Book. Eugene used to talk a lot about his dad and his experiences in the military. He also mentioned how he studied over seas and became a teacher in the states. He said he spoke a number of different languages. He also mentioned how  he loved his wife's Hungarian Goulash, in fact he couldn't get enough of it.  He will be sorely missed, rest in peace my friend.

Mr. Lowenberg will be interred at the Beth Moses Cemetery at 1:45 p.m. on Tuesday, April 3, 2022.  Post members will be at this cemetery at 1:30 pm to give our comrade, Eugene Lowenberg, a final salute.  The Beth Moses Cemetery is located at 1500 Wellwood Avenue, West Babylon, New York.  For more information call the cemetery at 631-249-2290.  Post members will meet at the Post at 12:30 pm, for car pooling.  Post members are required to dress in Full American Legion attire, this includes Hat, Jacket and Tie.  Thank you.
