  • Laid to Rest

    Thought I would share a story I just heard on the News. Sixty seven years ago a U.S. soldier named John Simonetti was killed while fighting in Normandy. He took out a enemy machine gun nest but was killed by a sniper's bullet. The story goes that his unit was separated from him during the fighting and when they returned to retrive his body it was gone. A few years ago his nephew visited the area and left his business card with his uncle's name on it. Recently a road crew unearthed a body with Mr. Simonetti's dog tags intact! Villagers remember the nephew and got in touch with him. It is believed locals quicky buried the soldiers body shortly after the fighting stopped. He was buried at Arlington with honors, sixty seven years after being killed in service to the USA.
