Reds carried with him the luck of the Irish and the love of many friends and family. He grew up in southern Maryland and in Washington DC on Capitol Hill. At 19 he enlisted in the Army and became a member of the 101st Airborne, and in basic training he quickly learned what he needed to know to become a paratrooper – he went up seven times before he landed in a plane. He went on to become a decorated World War II Veteran with three combat jumps at Sainte Mere Eglise (D Day), Eindhoven and Bastogne. For his service, he earned the Bronze Star Medal, the Combat Infantryman’s Badge and three Purple Hearts. He was a husband first and always and raised his family in Adelphi MD. He loved the beach, fishing and eating crabs. He was an avid Redskins fan through the good years and not so good years, and was a season ticket holder from 1966 when they were playing at Griffith’s stadium. He and Doris loved to travel, play cards and entertain. He was a member of the Moose Lodge, Knights of Columbus and the Elks club, and was a devout Catholic.
