52 True Tales of Family, Feasting, and the American Experience.

This is a photo of my grandfather, Antonio (1899-1993), in his Bersagliare dress uniform. He fought in WWI and was captured (I'm 95% sure) at the Battle of Caporretto in 1917. That is an Ostrich feather in his hat (hanging at left). Bersagliare were a very well respected light infantry corp. Some of his war experience and other stories about his amazing life are recorded in Eat Now; Talk Later: 52 True Tales of Family, Feasting & Family. I'd be curious to hear from anyone else who had family in the Bersagliare. Grazie! Reach me firstname.lastname@example.org
