General Milan R. Stefanik

At the Avenue A and East 8th Street entrance to Tompkins Square Park, to the left as you enter, on the ground, there is a plaque honoring General Milan R. Stefanik:

General Milan R. Stefanik plaque.

Astronomer, Soldier, Czecho-Slovak, Patriot. In that order!

Opposite that plaque is the base where another plaque once lay:

Base with missing plaque.

I wonder who it honored, and why it was removed?

The East Village is full of such mysteries!
