Old man winter did not lean on us too hard this season. We had to deal with only one major snow storm. Spring is here, and spring training is in full swing. Hopefully, the Yankees and Mets will wind up in a subway series.
At the last Executive Board meeting it was decided to form a Hudson Valley 10-13 "Wake Detail" that would respond to funerals. The Board decided it was important to show respect in a professional way to the family of a deceased member. The matter of dress was raised and it was suggested that we look into dark or blue blazers as a uniform. It was suggested that a Hudson Valley 10-13 shield plate could be made up to fit over the breast pocket of the jacket.
One of our members, Ptl. Robert Benjamin (30th Pct.) passed away on February 25th. Ptl. Benjamin was a highly decorated officer. One example of his dedication to duty occurred when after being attacked and stabbed in the line of duty and told to report sick, Bob refused. Shiva was held at his home and was attended by John Creegan, Richard Molloy, Carl DeNonno and myself. Instead of presenting the family with a Bible, we will be having a tree planted in Israel in honor of Ptl. Benjamin. May he rest in peace!
