MAMARONECK, N.Y. — Karen Sconzo, an ardent supporter of veterans and the Wounded Warriors Foundation, once again held her Cycling for Veterans class at various Westchester Equinox locations.

Inspired by her father, uncle and now her daughter, all who have served in the military, she runs the class to emphasize to her students why Veterans Day is an important holiday.

“Veterans Day honors those who have served the cause of freedom and peace. It is also a day for the younger generation to recognize that peace is precious,” she said.

Professor Douglas Gardner, Group Fitness Manager of Equinox Mamaroneck, took the class.

“I am honored to have Karen Sconzo teach our Cycling for Veteran’s Class," Gardner said.

Another class participant, Dana Carlos said, “I took her spinning class in honor of Veterans Day. My husband has been traveling for the last week and we all miss him terribly. I was thinking of all those families of veterans who live their lives like that for months and years at a time – never knowing whether their loved ones will return safely. This sacrifice is hard for me to even imagine – and I am incredibly grateful to all those who make it."

Judy Zolt's father went off to war, leaving his new wife behind.

“My father Milton was in Paris in 1945. He sent my mother Shirley, Western Union telegrams, telling her how much he missed her," Zolt said. He is holding the newspaper with the headline 'victory'. Their love not only endured the war but it lasted a lifetime.”
