MY FRIEND, MY HERO: PAUL PARAMATTO

It seems like yesterday that we were carefree kids playing in the streets of Brooklyn. We were called each one in his own time to serve. We accepted the call.

We didn’t agree, but we put duty and country first. Some of us went to Vietnam; some of us went to Europe. Anthony and Louie from our block never came back.

You made the ultimate sacrifice for us; you showed us what bravery was about and we will never forget you.

Until we meet again.

Your Childhood Friend,
Johnny
