Prospect Street Dedicated To Argentine

Following the Memorial Day ceremonies on May 27, the Village of Farmingdale held a special ceremony, dedicating Prospect Street, adjacent to the Village Hall, in honor of Farmingdale native, Marine Lance Corporal James D. Argentine.

Lance Corporal Argentine was killed, along with two fellow Marines, on Aug. 6, 2009, by a roadside bomb while supporting combat operations of Operation Enduring Freedom, in Farah Province, Afghanistan. Argentine was 22 years old.

Mayor Ralph Ekstrand said, “This is a fitting tribute to James and will permanently serve as a reminder of the sacrifice that has been made by the members of our military, who protect our freedom.”
