The Queens County American Legion Committee is set to give an indigent veteran his final honors in Glendale this week.

They won’t be forgotten.

In their continuing effort to make sure all veterans receive the final services they are due, the Queens County American Legion Committee will honor two more indigent veterans with a funeral service in Glendale, followed by a proper military burial at Calverton National Cemetery, this week.

On Wednesday, March 8, at 9:30 a.m., the Queens County American Legion will gather at George Werst Funeral Home on Cooper Avenue in Glendale to pay tribute to Anthony Maranowski and James Vernil, veterans who left behind no family or friends to arrange their funeral and burial services.

According to the American Legion, not much is known about this pair of veterans.

Maranowski was born on April 3, 1942. He served in the US Navy from May 21, 1959 to July 28, 1959. He died on Oct. 11, 2016.

Vernil was born on May 29, 1949. He served in the US Army during the Vietnam Era from Aug. 8, 1967 to July 29, 1970. He died on Dec. 14, 2016.

Following the funeral service, the Patriot Guard Riders will provide a motorcycle escort from Glendale to Calverton National Cemetery in Calverton, NY, where the veterans will be laid to rest at 11:15 a.m.

Last month, the Queens County American Legion Committee honored three indigent veterans with no next of kin with a funeral service and military burial.
