Antonio- I think I have your New Testament that you carried on WWII. It says
Presented to: Antonio Ruggiero H&S, 2nd BN, 304th. Regt, Florida Mississippi.

Let me know if you want this. I'll mail it to you. I found it in Cold Spring, NY in an antique shop.

I hope America can still produce the likes of you. The USA needs more American Italians like you. Like my Grand parents.
