Honor Mission
Angelo Maltese
US Navy - Vietnam Veteran

Calverton, NY - 11/19/2021
Mission applies to the following Region(s): Region 8, Region 9
About the Mission: The Patriot Guard Riders have been invited by the family to stand for Angelo Maltese. Angelo passed away in April of 2020 and did not get his military honors due to COVID, so the family is having his military honors ceremony on this day.

Angelo served his country proudly in the United States Navy, including two tours in Vietnam. He was honorably discharged at the rating of Airman Apprentice, and for his service was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal with 1 star and the Vietnam Campaign Medal.

After his military service, Angelo worked for the Department of Environmental Protection and then went on to work as an electrician. Since Angelo is already interred at Calverton, Section 52, Site 1000, his family has requested that we escort the family graveside after the ceremony at the shelter. Thank you and please join us in honoring Angelo's service.
