Special Mission
Anthony Felice
US Army - WWII
 
Geneva, NY - 03/09/2020
 
 
Mission applies to the following Region(s): Region 2, Region 3
About the Mission: Upon request of LTC Khamkay “Kai” Chitaphong of the United States Army, the Patriot Guard Riders have been requested to stand & honor Anthony Felice, age 97, from the Greatest Generation era who served proudly in the Army during WWII.  Anthony chose to leave high school and enlist in the Army prior to graduation, never receiving the graduation honors that most received.

His dedication to country has been unnoticed until recently.  According to the New York State Division of Veterans' Services, veterans who left high school without graduating are eligible to earn New York State high school diplomas.  New legislation, "Operation Recognition", created by Section 305 of New York's Education Law, recognizes the devotion and sacrifice of all Veterans who left school early by presenting them with a high school diploma. Anthony will be the oldest student ever to receive gradation honors in the history of Geneva High School.
