Happy Veterans Day to all who have sacrificed to serve in our armed forces
and protect our freedoms.
Pictured here in front of the Spitfire he piloted is Steve N. Pisanos, one of the many Greek Americans who answered the call of duty and took up arms to defend democracy. “The Flying Greek,” as he was known, flew with the British Royal Air Force and the American 4th Fighter Group during WWII and later served as a Colonel during the Vietnam War. Throughout his years of service, Pisanos was awarded three Legions of Merit, five U.S. Distinguished Flying Crosses, and the Purple Heart.
Remember to thank the veterans in your community and remind them of
our gratitude for all they have done for us!
