The Memorial Candle Program has been designed to help offset the costs associated with the hosting this Tribute Website in perpetuity. Through the lighting of a memorial candle, your thoughtful gesture will be recorded in the Book of Memories and the proceeds will go directly towards helping ensure that the family and friends of Les McMillen can continue to memorialize, re-visit, interact with each other and enhance this tribute for future generations.

Thank you.

A chance meeting

I met Les as I visited NY Military Academy for an interview for its Superintendent position.  As I came from Florida, Les had the responsibility to transport me. I found him to be friendly and informative.  He was very loyal to his school and I recognized him to be a very valuable employee.  As I later discovered, Les did everything and anything to keep the school going during its darkest time.  Even though our acquaintance was brief, Les had a personality and contenance that one does not forget.

I am sorry for his family's loss.  Again, he is a person I will never forget.
