                  It seems like yesterday !

                  Greetings Brothers and Sisters;

                  Former P.F.D. Lieutenant, Engine 7 (1972-73), Engine 47 (1969-72), 11th Battalion Relief (1968-69), 3rd Division Pool (1968).

                  Left the department in 1973 under political pressure from Joseph Rizzo & Frank Rizzo, but I still miss all of the brave guys I had the honor and privilege to work with, 38 years later !

                  I left with my honor intact and my head held high, and thanks to Attorney David Kairys and the U.S District Court, a pocketful of cash !

                  Best regards to all, and stay safe ! God Speed in your duty - always !
