New York’s Little Italy Remembers the Boys in Service
“This large service flag, decorated with an oil painting of a soldier, was bought with $100 raised by the Dapper Dan Social Club – they ran a dance. Yesterday the flag was taken to the church of the Most Holy Crucifix, Broome and Mott Sts., where Father Pascile blessed it. Then with a band, the flag was paraded all through Little Italy. Money thrown into the flag totaled $300. It will be used to send presents to the young me from Mott St., in the block between Broome and Grand, who are now in the service. Little Itay is proud of them.
