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.
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.Features Index Page
