    Carl, I'm going to add another Trivia question onto your post. How did Al Capone get his scar on his face?

      Easy Eddie was Big Al Mouth Peace back when...Butch O'Hare was Eddie son and a WWII Ace and they named the Air Port after him.
      As for the scar on Big Al face it happen in a bar-fight in NYC.

        Tree is right on about Butch O'Hare's father having been Al Capone's lawyer.
        I heard that the scar was applied by the brother of some girl Big Al had dishonored.

          Tree and 99 are spot on. The only thing I would add is Butch traded his records on Capone. In order to get a recomandation for his son to Annapolis. Butch was asasinated the very day Capone was released from prison on a medical.

            Capone was a bouncer in Brooklyn NY at a night club owned by a mob boss. He kept staring at a young lady, then he walked over to her and said "You have a nice a$$". She told her Brother who was there. He walked over to Capone and they started to argue. A fight started and the Brother pulled out a knife and made the famous scar.
            Treestand and Explorer you’re both correct.

                          Big Al told everybody later in his life, that he got his scar in the war, fighting in hand to hand combat.
