SAYVILLE - Seven veterans of the Vietnam and Korean wars who were killed in action were finally recognized in Sayville today for their valor.

John Lunds' brother, Warrant Officer W. Spencer Lund, died in Vietnam and was never mentioned on Sayville's war memorial until today.

"It means a lot," Lund says.

Other fallen Sayville natives lost in Vietnam and honored in the new memorial include 1st Lt. Lewis Gaiser, Airman Daniel Miller, Capt. John Gibbons, Capt. Merrill Masin and Navy Seabee James McGrath. Korean War veteran Sgt. Robert Ritter was also included.
