I am writing to share an event that will be taking place in my home town of Johnstown, Pennsylvania. This image of an article is from our local newspaper, The Tribune-Democrat, about an event being held at our Cambria County War Memorial on October 28, 2023.

I am a board member and will be inducting a native son by the name of Joseph Rizza. Thanks to the research and writing of Joe Ditler, I was able to put together an introduction befitting of Admiral Joe Rizza’s amazing life. I am hoping that any family members in the Coronado area might take note of this ceremony and be justifiably proud of Rizza’s induction into our Cambria County Military Hall of Fame.
