A TRUE IRISH HERO!
Gary Marchetti, a founding member of the Metro Detroit Police & Firefighters Pipes and Drums.
“Gary Marchetti formed a band 10 years ago, hoping they’d never get a gig. But on 30 sad occasions since, the Metro Detroit Police & Firefighters Pipes and Drums has been called upon to perform at the funeral of a public safety officer killed in the line of duty. . . “
