Those of us who attended the birthday luncheon this week got to meet Adam Pizzutti who I met on the Honor Flight in May. Some of us took him to lunch later and invited him to this year's birthday lunch.
Yesterday I received three photos of him taken during WWII aboard ship and in Japan. The photos were accompanied with this note:
During my life I've had my share of surprises. I enjoyed them all. However on Tuesday, November 10th, I was overwhelmed! Thanks to you all, I was an honored guest at the Marine Corps Birthday luncheon and making me an Honorary member was another high point.
Then for the icing on the cake, I was invited into the cake cutting ceremony. All this has been the highest point of my life. Thank all of you over and over.
God Bless you all and Semper Fi,
Adam is 95 and served on Saipan and Okinawa. His photos are attached and there is one of him with us in June.
