I am proud to be Al Pepper's cousin, also formally from Brooklyn, and I am now living in Los Angeles. I knew Al and his brothers (Herman and Ralph) and his sister (Ann) and being cousins we saw each other regularly in Brooklyn as kids and teen-agers until we all went our ways as adults. Bless you Al for being there when this great country needed you. I remember you vividly.
With much respect and love - your Cousin, Henry

Steve wrote an interesting piece BUT he only mentions Miller the first historian and Steiger the latest. There were a few more who contributed to the cause.

Congratulations!
I would like to comment on Officer Green's Award, well deserved!.
I am honored to have known Officer Green prior to his moving to California.
DuJuan, is a brother of mine earned on the battlefield of Baghdad Iraq.
He deserves your praises, as I praised him and all the brothers and sisters who sacrificed for our freedom.
Thank you Officer DuJuan Green, well deserved!!
