In his mid 60'sBrooks makes $112K/ year as chief. He has so many years in he's maxed out on his retirement. He can make $102K/year if he retired now. His health insurance, however, would increase in retirement to $22/month. He's the oldest active fire chief in NYS. He will be 87 in May. He served 22 months in Vietnam. He has one silver star, 2 bronze stars (one w/V device), a CIB, senior jumpmaster wings. and 3 purple hearts. He was in Vietnam from Oct. 1966 thru July 1968 with 2/86th Armored Cav Division.
Does not make $112K (see through NY)
Health Insurance would be the same
Max Pension would 70% FAS
Viet Nam ????????? They would probably be hanging on a wall in his office if it were true.
