Irishman shares his horrific World War II experience
James Wilson  @jameswilson1919 April 10, 2017 05:04 AM

*** begin quote ***

Even by the standards of the Greatest Generation, the life of Derryman Harry Callan has been nothing short of extraordinary.

Now 93 and living in north Dublin, Callan first went to sea at the tender age of 16.  Conscription was never introduced to Northern Ireland during the Second World War, but young Harry joined the Royal Navy anyway.

Joining HM Armed Forces at such a perilous time in British history was never going to be risk-free and Callan’s ship was captured.

*** end quote ***

When I read these stories, I want cry and yell.

‘I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!’ I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell – ‘I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad!… You’ve got to say, ‘I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!’ Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first get up out of your chairs, open the window, stick your head out, and yell, and say it: [screaming at the top of his lungs] “I’M AS MAD AS HELL, AND I’M NOT GOING TO TAKE THIS ANYMORE!” — the character Howard Beale played by Peter Finch in the movie Network (1976) 

How do we change this disastrous meme?

Take the advice of Nancy Reagan?

JUST SAY NO!

LONGTIME BOARD OF TRUSTEES MEMBER ROBERT ENGLISH ’56 PASSES AWAY

English was actively involved in the College’s alumni community.

Robert D. (Bob) English ’56 of Sands Point, N.Y. passed away on Sunday, April 16 at the age of 83.

An active philanthropist, English became chairman of the alumni annual giving program in 1983 and was elected to the board of trustees in 1986. English took the annual giving program to new levels of success and organized the Wall Street Seminar Series, beginning in 1985. He was a member of the board of trustees executive, development and nomination committees.

English graduated from Bishop Loughlin High School before attending Manhattan College, where he was part of the mile relay team that held the United States record. He anchored the Met mile relay championship team at the Penn Relays and was a member of four IC4A and six Metropolitan championship teams, earning him a spot in the Manhattan College Athletics Hall of Fame. English graduated in 1956 with a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and was the recipient of an honorary doctorate of humane letters at the 1997 Fall Honors Convocation.

After college, he joined the U.S. Marine Corps., where he was an officer for 10 years and attained the rank of captain. English started his career with the New York Telephone Company, transitioned to selling insurance with Mutual of New York, and then moved his family to Michigan to enter the investment industry with Bache and Company. He then returned to New York and became a partner at Neuberger and Berman until his retirement.

English was also a member of Covenant House, the Wounded Marine Semper Fi Fund, Port Washington Port Youth Activities, and various other local charities.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Patsy, his four children and his nine grandchildren. The family suggests that memorial contributions be made to the Wounded Marine Semper Fi Fund.

Rudolph Russo
1930 – 2017
Obituary 

POUGHKEEPSIE – Rudolph P. Russo, 87, died unexpectedly on April 6, 2017 in Tucson, AZ.

Born in Flushing on March 12, 1930, to Santo and Santina (Muzzicato) Russo, Rudy graduated from Pawling High School and continued on to earn a BA in political science from Manhattan College. After graduating from Columbia Law School in 1953, he enlisted in the US Navy, attended Naval Officer Candidate School in Newport, RI, and served as an Airborne Combat Intelligence Officer. He was a Lieutenant in the Naval Reserves for many years.

He was admitted to the New York State Bar in 1957 and has practiced law in Dutchess County for 60 years. Mr. Russo developed a keen interest in politics and public policy as a town judge and as the attorney for the towns of Beekman and Pawling. He was Chairman and attorney of the Dutchess County Legislature and also the attorney for Dutchess Community College.

From 1994 to 2003 he was the Chairman and CEO of Colorocs Information Technologies, an Atlanta company that developed cutting edge color imaging technology. He helped the company patent several aspects of this innovative technology and then licensed these patents to major manufactures of color printers and copiers.

In 2014, he was elected as a member of the Board of Directors of Salisbury Bank and Trust Company where he served on the Trust and the Audit committees.

Rudy was an avid sports fan. He played baseball in high school and was always ready for a pickup basketball game. He constantly astounded his friends with his vast knowledge of sports trivia. As an adult he honed his tennis game and spent many enjoyable hours with his tennis partners at the Poughkeepsie Tennis Club.

Rudy is survived by Nancy Rubsam, his beloved companion of many years, and by his daughters, Julie Kernodle and husband Kenneth of Longview, WA, Jean Atkinson of Tucson, AZ, Katherine Russo and wife L. Clark also of Tucson and by his sons Stephen and wife Cindy of Poughkeepsie and Michael and wife Keri of Tucson. He is blessed with eleven grandchildren: Michael, Andrea, Katie, Alyssa, Stephanie, Sydney, Dylan, Jared, Ashley, William and Elizabeth, three siblings: Carmela Russo of Poughquag, Agnes Treacy of Fishkill and Nicholas Russo and wife Nancy of Red Hook, and several great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his wife, Jean (Wallace), and his daughter, Patricia.

Nancy Rubsam will receive Rudy’s friends and family members at the couple’s home on Thursday, April 27 from 5 to 7 pm.

Calling hours will be held on Friday, April 28 from 4 to 7 pm at the McHoul Funeral Home, 895 Route 82, Hopewell Junction. A memorial service will be offered on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 10 am at St. Denis Church, 602 Beekman Road, followed by interment with military honors in the family plot at St. Denis Cemetery.

There will be a Celebration of Rudy’s Life at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in Rudy’s honor to Manhattan College Scholarship Fund, 4513 Manhattan College Parkway, Riverdale, NY 10471. Attention Thomas Mauriello, Vice President or to Cardinal Hayes Home, PO Box CH, St. Joseph Drive, Millbrook, NY 12545-0140. Please visit Rudy’s Book of Memories at http://www.mchoulfuneralhome.com.

In Response To JOBIT: Cashman, Jerry [MC1953 RIP] on 2017-04Apr-09
Submitted on 2017/04/18 at 3:59 pm

I’m so sad to hear of the passing of Dr. Jerry Cashman. When I was at Manhattan in the late 60’s, the Jasper Journal office on the top floor of Thomas Hall was my “clubhouse”. I was there every day between classes, just a couple of doors away from the Dean of Men’s office. So I saw Dr. Cashman and his assistant Mrs. Williamson just about every day, and they were two of the nicest people you could ever meet. They were never too busy to help you out or just chat. He was a good man. I’ll miss him.
