God Bless You, Officer Porcello

via Ace, comes this beautiful story of one of NY’s finest serving one of America’s finest

Sometimes when old Marines die they do fade away into unmarked graves in Potter’s Field.
Such might have been the case for Gaspar Musso, USMC 925050, who fought in the Battle of Tinian in the Marianas Islands in 1944 and who died Nov. 15 at age 84 in a Brooklyn nursing home.
Enter Police Officer Susan Porcello, a PBA delegate at the 68th Precinct in Bay Ridge and one of those big-hearted New Yorkers who still make this the best city on Earth.

A wonderful wonderful story for these cold winter days.

    That officer just racked up some serious jewels in her crown, as my Mee-Mommie would say.
