Gus S., 92, Vineland, NJ
Gus Siciliano, a WWII veteran and POW, recently had his wish for a new flagpole and flags granted. Although 92 and in hospice care for mesothelioma, he still lives in his home with Helen, his wife of 60 years. During a recent storm, their 25 foot flagpole and flags were destroyed. Siciliano is a proud Army veteran and was a prisoner of war in a Nazi prison camp in Germany. Until the storm destroyed them, he proudly flew both the U.S. and POW flags. After hearing of his wish, volunteers from Bucks County Service Industry Charities installed a new flagpole and donated new flags. On Saturday, November 17, 2012, over 50 members of Warriors’ Watch attended the wish granting and conducted a flag raising ceremony with Gus raising the flag himself.
Will be speaking about TWF and will talk about the great folks who made this wish on http://www.wibg.com 1020 Big Talk Radio with Joe Griffies on The Welcome Home Show today, 4/20 from 2 to 4pm EST. – Cass Forkin, Founder & Chairwoman
