Seeking Photos of our Hometown Heroes

The Township of Little Falls, with the assistance of American Legion Commander Herb Brychta, is currently working on a “Hometown Heroes” project. We have identified all the Little Falls War dead and are trying to obtain photographs of them. With some of the veterans going back to WWI, this has been an arduous task. These photographs will be placed on banners and displayed around town.

Below is a list of 28 fallen service members that we need photographs for or have ones that need digital reprocessing:

  • Austin Loran
  • James Storey Moon
  • John Adams Beattie
  • George H. Cueman
  • Louis Carota
  • John Di Giacomo
  • Leon De Graw
  • Vincent Dombrowski
  • Raymond Fylstra
  • Christian Fimble
  • Robert Harriott
  • Michael G. Hackes

Anyone that has a digital photo of a service member listed can email it to Herb Brychta – or Assistant Business Administrator Vincent Quatrone –

Citizens are always welcome to drop off their photos at the Municipal Building as well.
