Friends of the North End Commemorated with 50th Year Vietnam Veteran Pins

The Friends of the North End recently celebrated its 44th annual reunion. At the gathering Bob Chiota, a former North Ender and retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel, presented a 50th year commemorative pin inscribed with “a grateful nation honors you” to his North End Vietnam comrades.

Pictured from left to right are Richard Sinopoli, Ronald Fuccillo, Robert Chiota, Paul Lavecchia, Ralph Masciulli, Frank Tempesta and Joseph Blazo.

We thank our Friends for their valiant service a half century ago.
