  1. good job,Bob. I would just like to add to your “firsts” Capt. Louis Polcari. he was the first Italian American from the North End to graduate from the United States Military Academy at West Point and who served on Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s staff. I am sure that their are many more “firsts” out there as well. dB
