Tony Castellano and Rose Castellano Mattran

Tony Castellano was born in 1917 in Hoboken, New Jersey. One of five boys born into a large Italian-American family in the years before the First World War, Tony enjoyed a spirited childhood until all the sons were drafted into separate branches of the military at the outbreak of World War II. During a conversation he had with his daughter Rose in 2006, Tony described a few of the experiences he and his brothers witnessed firsthand while serving their country.
