Robert Barron recently received the Central Intelligence Retirees Association's (CIRA) prestigious Lloyd D. Salvetti Award. The criteria for the award are: Conspicuous excellence as an Agency professional; Commitment to CIRA, it’s mission to excellence, growth, and its members; Commitment to reinforcing in Agency officers and educating the public on what it means to be an intelligence officer.

Robert made amazing contributions to the success of many Agency operations. He enjoyed the challenges of making effective disguises that could pass close scrutiny and distract attention away from officers so they could successfully complete their operational tasks. His second career following his retirement from the Agency was dictated by his recognition of the fact that persons disfigured by cancer or accidents often suffered from a serious reduction in their quality of life. He embarked on a successful path to give back a disfigured person’s identity by designing facial prosthetics.

Robert has stated that each day is a gift but tomorrow is not a given, he intends to keep giving until there's no tomorrow.

It is noteworthy that CIRA has granted only one other Lloyd D. Salvetti Award.

Friends for Joey

Dear Friends:
Please join us for our annual "Friends for Joey" golf tournament fund raiser. If you can not attend you can also donate. Should you have any questions please contact Jon or Andrea at [email protected] or www.facebook.com/FriendsforJoey

"Friends for Joey"
The 6th Annual "Friends for Joey", golf tournament to financially assist families with children afflicted with Microtia will be held on August 25, 2015 at Mercer Oaks Golf Course in Princeton Junction, New Jersey.

Friends for Joey was inspired by our son, Joey Bucchere. Our goal is to financially assist families with children afflicted with microtia, a congenital birth defect in which the outer ear does
not fully form. On November 22, 2010 our family made the trip to Virginia to meet with Mr. Robert Barron of Custom Prosthetic Designs, Inc. to get Joey’s ear prosthesis.

We were amazed at the final product. The time, love, energy, and artistic talent that went into sculpting lifeless silicone into an intricate, beautiful, little ear took our breath away.

We are so thankful to all whose contributions made this happen for Joey. As a result of our first five fundraising events we have been able to help six children with microtia get their prosthetic ears and with your continued support can continue to help children with microtia and make their dream come true!

With warmest regards,

Jon and Andrea Bucchere and the Friends for Joey Committee

Our son, Joey was born with Microtia which is a congenital ear deformity. Our goal is to financially assist families with children afflicted with Microtia.
