Here’s my ticket from a recent trip to the JFK Presidential Library - it seemed
appropriate for this Memorial Day.
Today I remember both of my Grandfathers - Angelo Leone (paternal) and Thomas Orlando (maternal), immigrants to this country who both served proudly as Medics in World War II. My Mom met her Dad for the first time as a four year old. There is so much I am proud of in each of their stories.
They were proud to be Americans, and they grasped their duty to their new and beloved country with both hands. I am so proud their blood runs in my veins.
