"If it wasn't for the World War II veterans, I wouldn't be here right now," said Liberatore, a 65-year-old Jefferson resident. Liberatore was drafted into the Army in 1966 and served two years at Fort Hunter Liggett in California. Wanting to give back to veterans, Liberatore joined the Lincoln Park American Legion Post 279 as soon as he completed his own military service in 1968, and he's been there since. On June 10 in Wildwood, Liberatore was elected by American Legion members from across the state to be the organization's New Jersey Department commander for the 2011-12 year. Now, with an office in Trenton, Liberatore will oversee 382 American Legion posts throughout the state, comprising 54,000 members, and will advocate for veterans rights throughout the state. "It's a dream come true. It's something I always wanted to do. I'm excited," said Liberatore, a married father of two grown sons. After 35 years of employment, Liberatore retired from NJ Transit and saw that as his chance to continue working with the American Legion on a higher level. As department commander, a volunteer position, Liberatore will spend his days visiting veterans homes and nursing homes, working on children's and youth programs, and working with the Department of Veterans Affairs. In addition, Liberatore will be working on his commander's project: building a courtyard at the post-traumatic stress disorder unit at the Lyons VA hospital that younger veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan can enjoy. Liberatore is seeking to raise more than $100,000 to build the outdoor courtyard, he said. For the last 16 years, fellow Post 279 member Doug Wallis, of Lincoln Park has always known Liberatore to be very active.


June, 2013 | First Aid Corps

66-year-old Harold Liberatore from Milton recently led a fundraising campaign to purchase three AEDs (automated external defibrillators) for the Lincoln Park Police Department.
An AED is a portable device that can diagnose abnormal heart activity and then correct it with electrical therapy. Harold Liberatore the Survivor Liberator knew the medical equipment would provide critical aid to individuals in cardiac arrest. He never imagined, however, that it would save his own life. A few months ago, Liberatore was out shopping by himself for a party when he stopped at a traffic light along Main Street in Lincoln Park. That's the last thing he remembers before waking up in Chilton Hospital. There, a combination of dedicated medical professionals, technology, and perhaps a little serendipity enabled him to survive a heart attack and fully recover. Liberatore was found alone in his car, slumped over the steering wheel, by a bystander who immediately called for help. Fortunately, an off-duty police officer was driving right behind him, and additional responders arrived within minutes, including three more officers from the Lincoln Park Police Department and a volunteer rescue team from Lincoln Park Emergency Medical Services. First on the scene was Patrolman Russell Ruggiero, who is also an experienced emergency medical technician, and he had an AED in the trunk of his vehicle. In an amazing twist of fate, the very same machine may have been donated by Liberatore himself when he was commander of the local American Legion. The AED was used on Liberatore five times to "shock" his heart before he reached the hospital. "Harold's car was locked, so I yelled for the other officers to break the passenger window, allowing us to put the car in park and pull Harold out of the vehicle," Ruggiero recalled. "He had no pulse and wasn't breathing, so we performed CPR right there on the street and retrieved the AED ... which signaled the need for two 'shocks' before the ambulance arrived." Without hesitation, Ruggiero hopped in the rig to assist the first aid crew. Together, they continued CPR and electrical therapy along the way to Chilton Hospital in Pompton Plains. "As we approached the hospital, Harold started breathing on his own," Ruggiero said. Liberatore was successfully revived and soon under the care of Chilton's Emergency Department, where his story continues. Liberatore was promptly evaluated by the Emergency Department team and treated with another technological innovation: therapeutic hypothermia. Following a cardiac catheterization and two days of therapeutic hypothermia, Liberatore awoke fully coherent - eager to jump out of bed and straight toward an American Legion convention. On his doctor's advice, he opted for cardiac rehabilitation instead, enrolling in Chilton's 12-week outpatient program. "I know it happens every day, but you never think a heart attack will happen to you," said Liberatore. "It's a miracle I'm alive."

JEFFERSON, N.J. - Those who have ever wondered about the benefits of giving to charity may want to ask Harold Liberatore.

Harold Liberatore led a fundraising campaign to buy three AEDs for the Lincoln Park (N.J) Police Department, according to an article in Chilton (Hospital) Magazine.
One day, Liberatore was waiting for a stop light in his car, when he slumped over his steering wheel, a victim of sudden cardiac arrest. An off-duty police officer driving behind Liberatore called for assistance, and an officer from the Lincoln Park Police Department arrived first on the scene with an AED in the trunk of his vehicle - possibly one of the AEDs donated by Liberatore himself. He was revived by the AED, taken to Chilton Hospital for further treatment, and now has an excellent prognosis. He set events in motion that eventually saved his own life.
