Peppy, that is what we called you. It was not until many years later that I found out your full name ... Joseph Di Gregorio.
Furthermore, I discovered that you were from New York State too! I have been able to talk to your sisters and other members of your family and tell them about you.
In a couple of days Di Santis will celebrate another birthday! Some years ago, I was able to meet his parents and sister in Aurora, Illinois. He is already on this Memorial Site and I wanted you and Wolfe to be here too!
Thank you for being that "outstanding" soldier and doing what we had to do that night at Atkinston I think about you, Di Santis and Wolfe every day.
Your fellow squad member,
