The First Draft -- Many Years Ago

The story to the left was written aboard the Swiss Ship Celerena on September 24, 1962. It was handed to a news reporter for the Irish and British Daily Mail newspapers when the rescue helicopter landed in Cork, Ireland. It was intended as a letter to Caruso's parents, Fred and Josephine Caruso of Nanuet, New York. The story served as the central theme of "Born Again Irish."
