About the Mission:

PGR has been invited to stand for one of the last of The Greatest Generation. Anthony J. Nardone passed away on 1/3/23 at the age of 99 yrs. old. He was a 2nd Lt. in the Army Air Corps. His MOS was Navigator and he served during WWII in the European Theatre. His B17 was shot down and he was a POW for 9 months. After being liberated he joined the Air Corps Reserve and was active for 40 yrs. He was a very proud veteran.  PGR did a drive by for him last summer to celebrate his 99th birthday.  Please do what you can to help honor this remarkable soldier.

The funeral home does not have an obit up yet but there will be one in the D&C on Sunday morning. The funeral home is Falvo FH and their obit should be up Monday.
