The Rohna Remembrance Committee of West Haven invites the public to a program honoring the casualties and survivors of the HMT Rohna sinking in the Mediterranean on Nov. 26, 1943 during WWII. The program will take place at the West Haven Veterans Museum & Learning Center on Sunday Dec. 2, at 1:30.
West Haven soldiers Pacifico A. Migliore, Jr., John T. Cox, Jr., and Pasquale J. Logiodice, all members of the 853rd Engineers Aviation Battalion, were three of the 1,015 U.S. troops who perished on that fateful day.
West Haven High School students will be doing presentations of the wartime experiences of our three West Haven “buddies.” Also, board members of The Rohna Survivors Memorial Association, including Rohna author and documentary writer Michael Walsh, will be participating. Music of the time period will be provided by well-known local DJ, and veteran friend, Rick Gilbert.
The museum is located at 30 Hood Terrace. A reception will follow.
