Parade For WW11 Veteran
Enjoy sharing the day with Al, a WWII Navy Veteran and St. Charles resident.... and at least 100 others in this video! Our Post members came out in numbers- by our estimate, about 25 of us! Thanks to Col. Duane Buttell for bringing this to our attention in time for the Veterans Center to participate.
Thanks to all who attended the birthday parade!
A special "Thank you!" to AMVETS Post 503 Commander,
Col. Angelo Di Lliberti and American Legion Post 342 Historian,
Cpt. Anthony Catella, for their part in providing a special presentation to Al. Although Al is not currently a member of any of our St. Charles posts, he is one of Us!
Lastly, thanks to Jane and David Mercer of IDT Photo for providing their complimentary services of photo and video at very last minute. David is a post member from Aurora. We are sharing this with Al Centofante and his family as our special gift. This video is also being sent along with a written press release to all local media news outlets and to the City of St. Charles.
