When I was a child growing…
When I was a child growing up in Far Rockaway NY,
the cold war was there , I remember the cuban missle crisis and how we knew we were going to have a war. It was the 60s and all of us guys went and played ( against our Parents Advise ) in
the Old AC Field the AC stood for Army Camp.
Back during WWII the Field was a small Army Camp.
well we played there for hours as kids, learning all we needed to for survival ( should the russians land on the beach ) Which by the was was only 300 ft from my house. I remember the day me and 4 other kids were in the field just playing away when this Drunk ( thats why our Parents didnt want us there ) Popped up and scared the daylights out of us all.We ran as fast as our little feet would carry us back the the safe haven of home. Those long past days of childhood
still bring a smile from the face of this 49 year old kid .
