    This City still needs to apologize to this veteran and his family, even after all these years.

    The City of Rye NY sent Westchester County mental health experts to WWII veteran's home in an apparent attempt to silence the 86 year old from complaining about an illegal construction project.

    He spent 20 years in the U.S. Navy, retiring as a commander. A veteran of World War II, he was assigned to the LSM-441 of the Pacific Theater. He also captained the first non-Red Cross ship into Nagasaki, Japan, after the detonation of the second atomic bomb.

    When he complained to the Rye City Council they tried to have him committed to a psychiatric hospital and then had him arrested twice in an effort to silence him.

    RIP: BOB
