There are a lot of pictures online. Try Facebook under Cardinal Farley Military Academy. Also try flickr.com look under Holy Cross Campus. Tons of pix in there.

I remember CFMA not as a student but as a rival. I attended St. Francis Xavier in Manhatta from 1965 - 1969. We had a great football rivalry back them. Always envied you guys, you had a great campus. Sorry to read that CFMA is gone. I guess the late 60ís and 70ís killed off many of the secondary school who had JROTC programs.

I'm sure that is the same Buckley. How many could there be? His son's name was Andrew "Drew". He went to "Camp Elerslie" too.
I still have great memories of enjoying the run of the campus.
In the late seventies, it became a drug rehab place for teenagers. Holy Cross was a petty big departure from the CFMA environment.
I ended up renting a house nearly across the street from the old Cardinal Farley. On the property there were the remains of a massive cattle barn that burned in '64.
It was pretty weird living that close to the old place!
It was also pretty cool to live right next to the Hudson River. The power bill was $15 a month. There was crazy deal that we got power from the old CFMA power and there wasn't any meter on the house. Holy Cross, charged us a flat rate. Imagine how many electric heaters we had in Winter. It was petty cold, living next to the Hudson.
After a couple of years, I had to move on. I don't think I know how good I had it.
I wonder if that was the same house I lived in as a child. We moved to Florida in '66 and I remember the barn burning down prior to that.

I was there from 66-67. Hated the school, but loved the country. Too many brothers abusing the students in all ways. There were some good students and Col. Rasteter was great. I was in Spellman Hall...let the places rot.
a lot of Brothers were frustrated boy abusers-they would be locked up now
