This is in memory of John Dallara who Was a member of the ny pd ESU  Truck 2 who gave his life along with his fellow officers on the day that the WTC was attacked by terrorists,John was a lifelong Friend of mine, we grew up across the street from each other, i remember the day we all met it was about 40 something years ago, that was a long time ago.John was always into weight lifting and Physical fitness, judo and the Marshal arts he was the best he competed in weight lifting contests he also won  a few. He became a physical fitness teacher in the Bronx, later he became a ny pd officer , then moved up to the elite the Emergency service unit. He was  a good man and Friend, Some of the guys from the old neighbor hood still keep in touch, like Salomone who lives in the Berkshire mountains, we talk on occasion and remember the good times, Johns name always gets mentioned we talk about the Bronx in the late  1960 S and how it was, Im far from being a writer and i needed to let it be known that this man who gave his life protecting NYC and America, died that day, but his spirit is with all of us  and stays to live on . God bless you John we will always remember you.  Thousandair
