  My condolences to the family and many members of this site who have lost their good friend, FDNY Captain Joesph Abruzzo, Ladder 132. During his illness many members here spoke very highly of Capt Abruzzo, who was often referred to as "Uncle Joe".

  Captain Abruzzo, as well as all the other previous FDNY War Year Vets of these pages, will always be known for the work they did. Never has any other group of firefighters had to face such a staggering number of serious building fires, day after day, on such a routine basis. Each and every one of them facing the toughest conditions in the entire history of the fire service.

  I did not know Captain Abruzzo or any other of the FDNY War Year Vets of these pages. But I can testify to the kind of work they faced. So many people owe so much for what these very brave firefighters did for them. They were always willing to offer me their help when I asked for it. At times they allowed me into their firehouse homes, where I saw for myself, the kind of work these firefighters did. Very often I went in curious and left to be astonished.

 Thank you for your service to the City of New York.

  May Captain Abruzzo and all the other FDNY War Year Vets of these pages "Rest in Peace".
