SOME US WERE PART OF THE GREATEST GENERATION. Thank You Bob Ruby.
Reading on line about Trowbridge brought back some memories. First of all when I stared the Little League down at City Point, the field we built, and You have a picture of us building the concession stand that is still there You mentioned names of young Trowbridge boys. Joe Tonelli, Clarence , Bob Leonzo, they were some of my ball players Much before them were a group of boys and men who watched over us, Pat Morro, Pete Fox , Huck Finn. we talked sports always. Myself Bob Ruby, Ray Ferretti Pat Marenna , Vin Marenna Pete Villano, Howard Zoarski , Bob Zoarski Matty Bohan, Jim Bohan, Chuck Bohan, Art Hatje. I could go on,but just to name a few, Pat Marenna was killed in the Battle of the Bulge, Ray Ferretti was killed in Northern France, Matty Bohan was killed in Northern France. Howard Zoarski became a Superior court Judge, Pete Villan is still a State Rep in Hamden,Bob Zoarski and Art Hatje became Teachers. We were the WW II group who held up the square. Memories will never be forgotten but we were a strong group.
