Following his years in the armed services during World War II, ‘Hank’ Goldstein was instrumental in forming, organizing and managing the New York Skyliners senior drum and bugle corps in 1946, through the sponsorship of Raymond A Garbarina American Legion Post 1523. Over the following 56 years, he served in every area of corps activity, including playing bass drum, serving as corps director and serving as commander of Post 1523. He was a charter member of the Skyliners Alumni Association, and was awarded a lifetime membership, the most coveted corps award. Before helping to initiate the Skyliners, he played bass drum with several junior drum and bugle corps, including Phoebe Apperson Hearst Post and the Grand Street Boys. These two junior corps were the nucleus of the group that evolved into the Skyliners.
