My name is Tony Napoli aka Tony Nap and TN I'm an ex-fighter, I fought on
the USAF Boxing Team when I was on active duty in Japan, 1956 and I belong to an organization that my Father founded in April,
1954 called "Ring 8" Veteran Boxers Association of NY. We help indigent fighter's who need financial help, as well
as health care.We hold our meetings the third Tuesday of every month at the Waterfront Crabhouse, in Long Island City. I'm
also a recovering alcoholic since July 11 1994 and I'm making amends for those I have harmed in the past, by doing Volunteer
work for Veterans who need my help. I do the form # 526 showing their Service-Connected injuries, and the appeals process
free of charge. I'm with all VA Hospitals in the NY area, helping war time and peace time Veterans, These Veterans need someone
like myself with the knowledge that I have in accounting. When you read my story you'll find that I did jail time when I took
the law into my own hands and defended my Family. - read

mine, as is his son Tony now. Unlike mob rats telling their stories with gratuitous and self serving lies, Tony tells
