Memorial Mission

PFC Silvio Campanella, KIA

USA - WWII

Menands, New York - 14 Jun 2017

 



ABOUT THE MISSION:

The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited to attend a very special Memorial Ceremony hosted by the staff of St. Agnes Cemetery.

On Flag Day, June 14, 2017, United States Army PFC Silvio Campanella will be honored and remembered for his service and sacrifice during WWII. PFC Campanella was a member of the 42nd Infantry Rainbow Division who lost his life in France on January 19, 1945. His remains were brought home in 1948 and buried unceremoniously in an improperly marked grave. Recently, members of the 42nd Rainbow Division worked with the historic St. Agnes Cemetery to ensure that a proper grave marker was ordered and to organize a long-overdue honors ceremony.

The Patriot Guard Riders are privileged to have been invited to attend this ceremony to render dignity, honor and respect for the service and sacrifice of PFC Silvio Campanella.
