World War II veteran, and author of his self published, auto-biography titled "Tarzan of Manhattan" he tells the story of being raised as a "wild child" in a forested area of New York City in the early 1920's, and becoming a "living tourist attraction", to his war time adventures as a WW II Bomber Fighter Pilot who was captured by the Germans and became a POW. I came to hear him introduce his book, and I was able to snap this wonderful portrait! I listened to him talk for over an hour, and it seemed like 2 minutes. I was enthralled by every word. I wanted to hear more! He is a forgotten hero, but I hope to share this and tell his story to a world that is asleep, and bound to repeat history.
