Mystery Photo
Back in the 1950’s we still had the draft. This photo was taken on October 8, 1958 just before shipping out. Pictured here are (back row), Mayor Crowley, Joe Raso, Ed D’Onofrio, Ducky Adiletto, Tony Pinto, (front row) Lou Bourgeois, Stan Ruggiero, John (Inky) Doherty, and Alden Walsh. A big shout out to Director of Veterans Services Jeanne Cristiano for getting the names of the draftees.
