Memories of John Powell
It has been 10 yrs since John's passing (Jan 14, 2001). I first met John the summer before 8th grade playing CYO football in Massapequa. We became fast friends. In HS John, Don Brown and I surfed and partied our way through most of our HS years. John and I ended up attending St. Leo's College in Fl in 1965 for one memorable (the school administration did not think that at that time) year. In 1967 we both enlisted in the military. John enlisted in the Army and went on to become a highly decorated Army chopper pilot serving in Vietnam. Some of John's military awards...Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal with 15 Oak Leaf Clusters and the Bronze Star plus others. John always had the "right stuff". He was like a brother and he will never be forgotten. RIP
