The Red Bandana

“Tom Rinaldi’s The Red Bandana could very well become one of those classic books that are handed down through generations, for more than any book I have read in a very long time it convincingly tells the story of how great men and women become great–how cultural, community, and spiritual drives can develop that inner character that will make the world a better place. It is all found here in these pages–the intellectual and moral strength of a close and loving family, determination, guts and the sense of service that brings alive this memorable an beautifully written story of the 9/11 death of Welles Crowther. This book will always be set aside in my house to illustrate the art of writing, but mostly to honor the life of this courageous man– volunteer firefighter, champion athlete, well-positioned stock trader–a true friend and loyal son whose inner inspiration was to become a New York City firefighter. Every first responder will want to read this book every high school ad college English teacher will want to assign it and every thoughtful reader will give it to someone they love.” -Dennis Smith, retired FDNY firefighter and author of Report from Engine Co. 82
