Patrolman Mariconda,
On today, the 50th anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just for your Community but for our Country as well when you served with the U.S. Army in Vietnam. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

I never realized this page existed until now, many years after I first me Joe. I was on convalescent leave from Walter Reed Hospital in Washington DC in mid-1969, recovering from wounds suffered in Vietnam while piloting a helicopter for the 1st CAV Division. I had my left foot shot off from a .51 cal round while airborne. I was living in Brooklyn and decided to visit the NYPD Helicopter Unit, and met Joe that very day. We became friends from the start, a friendship which would not last very long unfortunately. But through Joe I made numerous and long lasting friends in the unit; married twice my two best men were from the unit!

Joe was my friend and mentor. We grew up in different parts of the Bronx. I worked for Joe as an assistant camp counselor when he was in college and I was in high school. Because of Joe I joined ROTC during college. I received my Army commission in 1968. I was serving overseas when my family sent me word of Joe's death. Since that date I have missed my friend and remember him as the special person he will always be in my life.

My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.
