Chief, sorry for the loss of your good friend and Brother Firefighter Bill Laghezza.
He was a Role Model to you and I'm sure to dozens of others along his firefighter journey in life.
As posted, a USMC Korean War Veteran as well.
My condolences to all the family and friends of FF Laghezza, aka "billybucktail"
