I cannot believe the devastation "Sandy" has wrought upon the Rockaway's in Queens. The Rockaway's were my summer hangout area during the summers of my teens.
I actually spent most of my freshman year of high school at Far Rockaway H. S. before moving a few miles away to Cedarhurst in Nassau County on the south coast of Long Island and finishing HS at Lawrence High School in 1958. That area, being only 3 miles from the Atlantic, was also terribly devastated by hurricane Sandy.
I am proud to say, I was a member of the US National Guard reserve in 1962. Serving my active duty at Ft. Knox, Ky. and, Fort Meade, Md.
The news about the reservists being kicked out of their armory is being told on the early evening news as I write.
