    Hello, my father’s family grew up at 440 Parma Center Road. His mom and dad had a farm there in the very early 1900’s. My grandmother Ethel Derosia died in the farm house at 96 years old in 1996. When my dad was 18 he and 11 other young men from Parma Center went to a Rochester meeting where a high level government speaker from Washington was rounding up men to join the armed forces for the Koren War. After the rally my Dad, his brother and 10 other young men from Parma Center my Dad called the group “the Parma Center Boys” all signed up to join the Air Force. They were promised that they would all stay together as a group and this promise sealed the deal that these 12 men made to join. These twelve grew up together went to Parma Center one room school house across the road from my Dad’s parents home. They played baseball together and where know in the Hilton area as the Parma Center Boys. After basic training much to there dismay they were all separated. My Dad was shipped in the bottom of a Navy ship to Okinawa, Japan, (he never liked confined spaces after that)he served both at a jungle outpost and at the Okinawa Base bomber camp. He was such a good baseball player that the Post Commander had him play on the Air Force baseball team. He traveled which sometimes got him off the base. He also told me about stories of “leave” but stopped short is telling me much about that. My Father passed away a couple of months ago I wish I would have recorded this and many life stories that he told me because my memory is missing many parts of the story and the names of the other men “they all had nicknames too”. He told me where they served, when they came back to Parma Center. Who they married If they are still alive and where they are now. My Dad was the last of his three brothers, two of which passed in the last couple of years who both served in the Korean War. I would love to talk with any of the Parma Center Boys is you ever hear of them. I hope you enjoy this little bit of my family’s history.
