SLEEPY HOLLOW-- New York Guard Acting Commander Colonel David J. Warager delivers remarks at the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in Sleepy Hollow N.Y. during a May 6 ceremony commemorating 40 members of the New York Guard who died during the influenza pandemic of 1918 while guarding the New York City water system during World War I. Their names are inscribed on a plaque set in a boulder taken from Bonticon Crag in the Shawangunk Mountains along the line of the aqueduct that they protected. The memorial is constructed on property donated by the Rockefeller family.
