RU Airborne attended the ceremony which turned out great! Ed Purcaro spoke about how the Badge of Merit led to the Purple Heart Award. Afterwards, Lawrence Vince (92yrs old), of the 9th Division talked in depth about the battle of Remagen Bridge, WWII Germany followed by Viet Nam Veteran Anthony Lassiter about his tour of duty in “Nam”.
The Director Anita Pidala put together a fine event and was pleasant as always. The renovation of the “Purple Heart Hall of Honor” is displayed in an open and modern way with clean lines. This event was a great representation of Vets from different branches of the armed services. Even the coastguard was there. “Hooooah”
