Glen Cove GI Injured in Afghanistan
Private E-3 Edwin Robert Friskey of Glen Cove, son of the late Edwin and Jane Friskey, was recently injured while serving with the US Army in the war in Afghanistan. While the information that is coming home is coming home in bits and pieces, what is known is that Pvt. Friskey was riding in a Humvee when the group was fired on, and returned fire. A device that had been set in the road exploded, killing one soldier and injuring two, including Pvt. Friskey who was thrown out of the vehicle. He suffered a broken ankle on one foot, broken heel on the other, diesel fuel burns over parts of his body and myriad stitches on his face and body. Pvt. E-3 Edwin Friskey was the recipient of the Purple Heart for injuries sustained in the battle.

Family members, fellow teachers, retired teachers, students, GCHS alumni and friends from the community came to hear documentation of the charges of sexual harassment brought against Mr. Gallo by a female high school student almost two years ago.
