Long Island Resident Makes A Difference Each Memorial Day

Antonio Bastos is a Long Island resident that served 12 years in the Marine Corps. He had always loved the uniform and had a strong love for our country. After his active duty service he then stayed in the Reserves, as well as being a Civilian Contractor. He currently resides in Mineola and works at Window World of LI in Farmingdale as a Sales Manager.

His photo is promoted on a street sign in the Village of Lindenhurst amongst many others as part of their Hometown Heroes promotion, which honors local residents who served our nation. As Memorial Day approaches, Kim V., Antonio’s girlfriend, shared something special about him. “His Memorial tradition is to visit families of fallen marines to comfort them and provide them with new flags to put up” says Kim. “I couldn’t be more proud of him!”

Thank you Antonio for your service!
