Always a General: Remembering Joe Gallagher

In 2015, Newsday published an award-winning documentary on Brendan Gallagher, a MacArthur High School student with autism and his relationship with his parents, his classmates and the community that embraced him. Brendan became the inspiration for MacArthur's LAX for Autism games. In 2019, the community was shocked when Brendan's father, Joe, passed away due to a heart infection.
