I just received notification that one of our few remaining retired cops that served in WWII has passed away.
Henry Joseph Zajac, 91, of Liverpool passed away peacefully on Thursday. Born in Syracuse he was a graduate of Vocational High School and a WWII Navy Veteran serving in the South Pacific.Another retiree recollected one of Hank's comments when he arrested a mouthy Asian defendant:
"Shut up! I shot your father out of a tree on Guadalcanal and I'll do the same to you!"There's no school like the old school.
