Ask any Levittowner the story of Lt. Stephen E. Karopczyc, and they’re sure to tell you a tome about the Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient that embodies the level of sacrifice and commitment it takes to serve in the United States Armed Forces.
During a tour in Vietnam, Karopczyc fought valiantly alongside members of his platoon, when he spotted an enemy grenade had been lobbed into the trenches. Beaten and injured, Kropczyc sacrificed himself, covering the live grenade to save the lives of the other men in his unit.
For a community built to house the thousands of war veterans returning home after World War II, the story of Lt. Karopczyc is but one of many that will continue to be echoed throughout future generations to preserve the memories of those who sacrificed their lives for our country.
