Paying Tribute

Photos by Jordan Moss

Norwood resident Anna Rogovin (left) was among those honoring the fallen at the annual Memorial Day ceremony organized by Post 69 of the Jewish War Veterans at the Museum of Bronx History on Bainbridge Avenue. Rogovin, a former Navy WAVE (Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service), served as a chemist in Washington, D.C. during World War II. She went on to work for Sloan Kettering, Colgate Palmolive and the American Petroleum Institute. She will turn 90 in September.

It was the 40th anniversary of Post 69’s installation of the flagpole monument, which is maintained by the Bronx County Historical Society.

Don Tannen, a World War II veteran, held the American flag while Edward Baraw, the Post’s commander, saluted. The ceremony was attended by about two dozen members of the Post and its Ladies Auxiliary.
