We have recently lost three legends from "The War Years": Capt Tim Gallagher, BC Larry Lee and F/F William Ostrander. You have to stop and acknowledge these men and all the men who served during that period, those who have passed and those who are still with us. It is men like these who have made the FDNY the greatest.
Rest in Peace to the departed. Continued thoughts and prayers for you. Thank You to those who are still here. Thoughts and prayers for you as well.
And may your stories continue to be told, over and over again, so we may always know what you did, what you lived through and never forget what you accomplished.

Ret. Supervising Dispatcher George Slattery passed away peacefully last night in West Palm Beach, FL. I believe he had been ill for awhile. There are be no funeral arrangements yet and Steve "Whitefish" Ternlund Ret BN*41 will be handling the arrangements, as per George's request.
George was well known to anybody who worked in BKLYN In the 70's & 80's. A REAL GENTLEMAN.
REST IN PEACE BROTHER.....PRAYERS FOR THE COMFORT OF THE FAMILIES.

On Christmas Eve, we were informed
that Jim O’Meara one of our
most respected and beloved members
suffered a heart attack right before he
was to undergo his dialysis treatment.
Jim was an 82 year old Navy veteran
of the Korean War. He stayed in the
U.S. Naval Reserves for more than
30 years attaining the rank of Chief
Warrant Officer 4 and was known
for his more than two decades of
volunteer work with the Korean War
Veterans at the Brooklyn VA Hospital
and also being a tour guide at the Fort
Hamilton Museum. He retired from
the FDNY as a Lieutenant after 32
years of service. At our Post, he will
be remembered as the gentleman who
always went out of his way to help a
comrade
