Manhasset Says Farewell to One of Its Own
Bundled against the biting cold they waited for the funeral procession to wind its way up Plandome Road so each privately, and with their collective presence, could say farewell and honor James J. Regan, 26, Army Ranger and local hero. Sgt. Regan, a member of the 75th Ranger Regiment, the premier light-infantry unit of the United States Army, was struck by a roadside bomb on Feb. 9 while conducting combat operations in Iraq. "I've attended Memorial Day Parades in town and now we're here for the actual opportunity to pay our last respects to a contemporary soldier. We're gathered here to honor him," said Walter J. Heske.
