Paul DiMartino sent me two letters, the first which he returned in March of 2010, was the form he filled out on his service.  I spoke to Paul sometime during the summer 2010, and he later sent me his dispatch paper and two copies of photos in November 2010.  The photos are copies on paper and they are not that clear, but they tell so much.  Click here to read the letter and see the photo’s that Paul T. DiMartino sent.
