On a sunny May afternoon, friends gathered at the Warrior Ranch in Calverton to dedicate a memorial tree honoring the late Jean Littman, a corporal in the U.S. Marine Corps, who served our nation during the Korean War, from 1952-1955.
Littman was remembered by members of Women in the Marines Association, president of Warrior Ranch Eileen Shanahan, and community members as a spirited and independent woman who was deeply entrenched in veteran organizations and was always there to lend a helping hand.
“Jean would have loved this magnolia tree,” said Lisa Fischer, a member of the Women Marines Association, NY-7, who dedicated the tree in memory of Littman. “We all miss her.”
In 2019, Littman seized the opportunity to travel with Honor Flight Long Island (honorflightlongisland.org) and spend the day with fellow veterans visiting war memorials in Washington, D.C. She also served as the grand marshal for the 2021 Chamber of Commerce of the Moriches Veterans Day parade.
Littman died in 2022, and was interred at Arlington National Cemetery.
