“Sgt. Bast exhibited true heart, courage and devotion to his community and fellow countrymen. He stands among those noble few, who did not hesitate to join the recovery efforts following one of the darkest moments in our nation’s history. Our deepest gratitude goes out to him and his family. May the dedication of this street in his honor, serve to remind us of the many sacrifices made by the men and women of our Town—the repercussions of which are still felt 20 years later," said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter.
