Remember Pearl Harbor

with 2 comments

Remember Pearl Harbor, a day that lives in infamy. A good friend, Joe Hydrusko, was on a ship hear the Arizona and when the Arizona went down. Joe was a corpsman on a hospital ship and he dove in and saved over 20 men. Joe was never awarded the CMH, and he should have been. He was quite a character and sadly died in a plane accident over twenty years ago. He used to fly his Stinson Reliant around the statue of liberty on Pearl Harbor day and drop roses on it in remembrance of what happened and the people that lost their lives that day. It was something I have to admit seemed unreal to me until we had 9/11. God bless Joe, and the rest.
Thank you for reading this blog.

    • This is just a backup of my blogger blog, which has all the content I’ve every produced as The Right Guy http://www.therightguyshow.com . That said, I met Joe through my mom. She worked for the lawyer that handled his real estate dealings and she was a paralegal/expediter. I helped Joe clear out the property when he sold his restaurant. He was quite a character and I kind of got attached to him. When he died in his plane, it was very sad. He was okey dokey and a lot of fun.
