New York City gave my Lynbrook Police Dept. a new Veapa in 1965.
I rode that scooter for almost 3 years of course I had to pull traffic duty as well. Then I rode a three wheel Cushman untill I retired.
Most of all the men working back is 1962 to 1983 as long gone.

they call me Officer Lucky
In 1962 october I became a Traffic Cop in 1965 gave me a Vespa.
My experiences would take volumes,
instead I wrote several books.
I was 4 years old when World War 2 started.
Living next to New York City, afraid of bombs from Airships,
aircraft lighter than air, powered, and navigable from Germany.
Spies landing off the cost of Long Island
During the War no one had anything it all went to the
War effort, the times was harsh and ugly.
I began making paper airplanes.
At the Holy Name of Mary’ Catholic grade school in Valley Stream.
Patriotism was at the height level.
The nuns always walked in pairs to town.
They were baby watches pretending they were teachers.
The school was over crowed, two children to a desk.

One nun in particular singled out students with German names.
When she was alone she would tell us how her brother died in the war.
The Sisters/Nuns wore black vials habits with big white bibs,
and big Rosary Beads around their waists.
They would stand in front of the class finger the beads and pray.

The beads were made up of five or 15 decades of Hail Mary’s
each decade beginning with an Our Father and ending with a Gloria.
It was a common stylistic device in the Middle Ages to name collections of verse or similar short pieces after bunches of flowers.
This was the background against which a collection of Roman Catholic prayers came to be known as a rosary.

One day, I felt sick; the Nun dragged me out of the class,
afraid the others would become sick seeing me vomit.
To vomited in the hallway…
Having an instant nosebleed, sneezed, red dots on her bib.
She lost here composure, almost wrenched my left arm off my body. Another sister told her ‘let him go he did not do it on purpose,
to go and change.’
My Mother was told and had to buy her a new bib.

To this day, when it rains I feel aching pain in my left shoulder.
Transferring to Wheeler Avenue PS #13 was no better.
The principal maintained order at all costs.
Never learned a damn thing…
I hated schools so much I quit and joined the Army
my Motor Soldier Down book tell how we got motorcycles.

When I was 16 I bought a NAVY old Cushman pained red and became a volunteer fireman for all the fire calls. Nassau county police
just let me go if fact they could not catch me.
I drove a tow truck on the Southern State Parkway untill I volunteered for the Army, basic training radio school advance infantry.
As soon as the Army found out I was driving tow trucks and firetrucks
They sent me to Senca Army Air Field upstate New York
to teach all the escort guards from New York City and Phelidelpa how to drive - they knew how to barrow the car for a night with their girlfriends
but did not know how to drive it safely.
I sure would like a scooter but to be honest I am still paying off the Harley.
