Air Force vet celebrates 100


Retired Air Force veteran and FDNY firefighter Chester Moscicki celebrated his 100th birthday. He was born in Brooklyn on May 2, 1922. He now lives in Center Moriches. He served during WWII as a tail gunner in a B-26 and was wounded during a crash landing on a Japanese island. He is also known for shooting down a Japanese airplane. After returning home, he joined the FDNY in 1945, where he became a captain. He served for over 30 years before retiring in 1976.

He is an avid reader and private person, who deserves the recognition.
