On this Memorial Day, City Island Images wishes to send out a salute and to pay tribute to all US veterans and their family members, for all those sacrifices they have had to endure over the years.

This weekend, many are opening up their pools, going to the beach, or cooking on their grills. But Memorial Day is a lot more than just a three-day weekend. Memorial Day is a solemn time to remember those who have sacrificed their own lives for the rest of US.

City Island Images pays tribute to this City Island father and son team. The photograph features 90 year old City Islander and decorated war veteran Robert Branizza, with his son Robert Jr.
Mr. Branizza, Sr. moved to City Island with his parents from Astoria, Queens, at the young age of 5. His son, Robert Jr. now lives in South Salem, New York. Happy Memorial Day, Tocayos!
