These are the War Years Vets that are passing away just about Every day. Most of them served their Country during WWII. Some during Viet Nam.

 There will NEVER be another group like them. When they are described as a War Years Vet, they fought the fires of the FDNY War Years. The busiset time in the history of the Fire Service for fires. What these FDNY Firefighters did during their careers is hard to explain. They fought numerous fires Every shift they went to work. Their stories can only be told by them.

  FDNY Firefighters William Kalfa and FF Henry Del Percio, May You Rest in Peace. Thank you for services to the Citizens of New York and to Our Country.

A correction on the services as well as a further update on Stan's career......
From www.watkinsst.com

"We regret to inform you of the death of Captain Stanley Foner who was another War Years veteran who has passed to a higher level. Captain Foner was a FF at Watkins Street from 1959 -1970. He was assigned to E231 in 1959 and transferred to L120 in 1967. He was a Lt in L147 in 1973. He retired as Captain of L157 in 1991. He was part of a generation of Firefighters and Fire Officers who believed (and preached) "Maximum Effort" and these fine men are considered the FDNY's version of "The Greatest Generation". Captain Foner was the recipient of numerous Meritorious Acts: Class "A" - 1964 Class 3 - 1966 Class "A" - 1969 "Fireman of the Month - 1969 Funeral Arrangements: A Funeral Service will be held on March 29th (1pm) at Maimonides Cemetery located at 300 Elmont Road (Long Island) Please keep the Foner family in your thoughts and prayers"
