In a ceremony before the football team’s season opener last weekend Chaminade High School in Mineola dedicated its new stadium to the alumni  who gave their lives serving the country. The stadium is named “Gold Star”  after the lapel pins giving to the  family members of fallen soldiers.  See below for photos from the event and look for a feature article on the Gold Star tradition at Chaminade in the October issue of Long Island Catholic Magazine.
