Click here to view the Record obituary article from August 20, 2009, mentioning George P. Velotto’s service during the Korean War from 1952 till 1954.
 Mr. Velotto, as I knew him when I was young, was a well known teacher during the 1960’s. When my brother attended the Junior High School, as it was known when he went to State Street School in the early 1960’s, and then it was called
the Middle School when I went to State Street School in the late 1960’s.

Sometimes, the only time we find out a man’s service is when he passes and others record his history.
