Archie Schiano, our secretary, has arranged the speakers for the Saturday, October 20 meeting, and is securing a meeting venue in Bergen County.  The speakers are Special Agent Bruce Sackman, author of “Behind the Murder Curtain” and co-authors Michael Vecchione and Jerry Schmetterer.  The book deals with the murders of Veteran by doctors and nurses.
