My Father Paul Sr. and His Friend Grace in front of the WWII Memorial

My Father Paul F. Frontiero Sr. never misses this Ceremony. He is 85 years old and Legally Blind, but you can still seem him walking around Main st. and at the Senior Center everyday. Paul was a Coxswain of an LCVP invasion boat  in the WWII Pacific Theater. He Drove the LCVP in many Invasions such as; Saipan, Tinian, leyte and more I can’t remember at the moment.  He has some great stories of his time in the Pacific. Say hi if you ever seem him Downtown.

My Fathers Painting he did of himself and his Landing craft. LCVP

Remember

We who are left how shall we look again
Happily on the sun or feel the rain
Without remembering how they who went
Ungrudgingly and spent
Their lives for us loved, too, the sun and rain?
