Friends and Riders, we have been invited by the Nassau Fire
Riders MC, to stand with them as they memorialize one of their own, Sgt Jack Diamondstein, US Army Green Beret, 3 tours in Viet Nam, Purple Heart recipient, 2 time Chief and 3 time Captain of the Merrick FD, and founder of the Nassau Fire Riders, who passed in Nov 2010.
Some of you may have met Jack when we welcomed home Eddy Murray to the Sea Cliff Fire House. The memorial service will be in Eisenhower Park, in Eastmeadow L.I. on Sunday May 15 at 09:00. Not sure yet of where in the park but I will update as info comes in. Region 9 members will stage at the Waldbaums parking lot, 106/LIE with a KSU of 07:45. Regions 8 and 7 can go directly to the park, please try to be there by 08:30. Make sure to bring your flags with you. I will be R/C for this service.
Frank Byrnes , Region9 Ride Captain
