MEMORY LANE

CONNETQUOT, NEW YORK

Paratroopers Falling from the Sky

In Chapter 21 of Memory Lane, Dick Wolfe spoke about his World War II memory of watching United States Army paratroopers jumping from planes and landing on local fields. These military training maneuvers also left a lasting impression on Lorraine Mays, who told us about riding her bicycle to the area of Island Hills Golf Club to watch the event. We invite you to listen to Lorraine’s memory of the paratroopers and how her family became pen pals with one.
