World War II Veteran and Author Vincent Speranza to Speak at Chatham American Legion Post 759 at 206 W. Chestnut St, Chatham, Illinois on 2 May 2018 @ 6:30pm.
Vincent Speranza grew up on Staten Island, part of a large and colorful Italian family. Following Basic Training, he became a paratrooper and joined the 101st Airborne Division just prior to the Battle of the Bulge, where the unit became famous for its defense of Bastogne. Speranza tells of returning to Bastogne 65 years later and of his participation in an Honor Flight to Washington, D.C. to visit the new WW II Memorial in 2009.
Mr. Speranza is a stirring speaker and author of the book Nuts!: A 101st Airborne Division Machine Gunner at Bastogne
