BAYONNE BRIEFS

Hollander Room dedicated

The Hollander Room at the Joyce Herbert VFW Post 226 was dedicated to Dr. Milton B. Hollander (1928-2017), an Army veteran, executive, and supporter of education, with a lifelong devotion to American manufacturing and the U.S. Military. He was proud of his Bayonne roots and of graduating from the technical division of Bayonne High School.
