In Honor of Veterans
Nov. 10, in a Veterans Day program, Putnam Rotary Club members were mesmerized by the tales of WWII veteran Victor E. Lippiello, 100 — from the bad timing having his service in the Army being extended because the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, to the lessons gin taught him when he was stationed on Fishers Island to the heart-stopping memory of parachuting behind enemy lines in the Philippines. Lippiello is a treasure of northeastern Connecticut. Left to right Rotarian and veteran Pete Benoit; Putnam Rotary Club President Kristen Willis; Victor E.
