Lanza Secures Funding For Memorial

 

A memorial honoring American and allied troops of World War II, who served on Anzio Beachhead, Italy, was unveiled yesterday at the Boy Scout Camp Pouch in the Sea View section of Staten Island. The monument, surrounded by about 10 miniature American flags and between a large American flag and POW flag, joins three other memorials in the Until We Meet Again Garden. The Staten Island monument, memorializing the more than 70,000 casualties at Anzio Beachhead, was funded by then Councilman Andrew Lanza's grant.
