How our community supports our Veterans:
The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians [LAOH] is a National Catholic Irish American Fraternal/Sisterhood Organization pledged to God & Country.
The LAOH Division III, headquartered on Railroad Avenue in Pearl River, is dedicated to the principles of Friendship, Unity and Christian Charity, the promotion and preservation of our Irish and Irish American Heritage and Culture and Catholic traditions and civic and community participation.
Just one example of its civic and community participation is how they made another contribution to the Rockland Homes For Heroes Supportive Apartments for Homeless Veterans Project. The contribution was made in memory of all who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our beloved Country and to pay homage to them on Memorial Day & D-Day, the day that so many were killed who passed through Camp Shanks, the world’s largest WII Port Of Embarkation for troops going to Europe to fight the Nazi army.
The contribution will be used to help add 14 more Supportive Apartments to the existing 8, which together will create a Living Memorial to those who never came home.
