My name is Tony Napoli aka Tony Nap and TN I'm an ex-fighter, I fought on the USAF Boxing Team when I was on active duty in Japan, 1956. My Father was one of the Wiseguys who put together an organization in April, 1954 called "Ring 8" Veteran Boxers Association of NY. Helping indigent fighter's who need financial help, as well as health care. I'm also a recovering alcoholic since July 11 1994 and I'm making amends for those I have harmed in the past, by doing Volunteer work for Veterans who need my help. I do the form # 526 showing their Service-Connected injuries, and the appeals process free of charge. I'm with all VA Hospitals in the NY area, helping war time and peace time Veterans, These Veterans need someone like myself with the knowledge that I have in accounting. When you read my story you'll find that I did jail time when I took the law into my own hands and defended my Family. 

"Jimmy Nap was a friend of mine, as is his son Tony now. Unlike mob rats telling their stories with gratuitous and self  serving lies, Tony tells his with honesty and a peacefulness of a man having come to grips with past conflicts in a peaceful way.  Readers will see things as they really were, not as the writer wishes they might have been."
~Sonny Girard, Former mobster and author of Blood of Our Fathers.

What I do Now
L-R in picture  is Tony (tony nap) Napoli with his writer, Charles Messina
Besides the Volunteer work I do for Verterans and Indigent Fighter's I enjoy putting together my Autobiography with a very passionate and dedicated writer named, Charles Messina.  When you read my story you will find that I started it when I was 26 years old. It's been in the past years that I've been trying to get a writer who shows me the respect, Humility, compassion, dedication and integrity, to publish a true story without too much Creativity.  In 2006 I met with a young man who helped me write two Screenplays and the Book. That writer is Charles Messina.

My wife, Laura is something special, she also went to classes for one year, with two of my children, one hour a week at the VA Hospital in Fort Hamilton, to learn how to live with a Recovering alcoholic. She showed me love, strength and a determination to keep the family together. She also, worked as a chef 8 to 10 hours a day in her own small catering business. She helped support the family. Two of my daughters graduated college, one with 2 masters and is a schoolteacher, the other with a Bachelor Degree and works for Merrill Lynch in private clients accounts.

The most interesting part of my life is when I was a young teenager and started on my Boxing career. I played baseball for my High school team at Grover Cleveland HS in Ridgewood, Brooklyn NY. during the years, 1951-1955. I played football and soccer, but Boxing was my favored. I was in the Golden Gloves and boxed in the CYO and PAL leagues. At 20 years old I joined the United States Air Force and was assigned to (SAC) and represented the 1956 Air Force Boxing Team in Japan.
