In Memoriam – Joseph Pisano

The Chapter is deeply sorrowed to announce the passing of Chapter Member, WWII veteran and dear friend, Joseph Pisano. Joe passed away yesterday morning, November 27, 2017.

Joseph Pisano

Joe was born in Brooklyn and grew up in Queens, NY. He was inducted into the Army a year after Pearl Harbor. He volunteered to be a paratrooper after basic training at Fort Jackson, but was instead assigned to glider training. Joe was deployed in October 1943 to England to begin preparations for D-Day. Joe was in the F Company, 327th Glider Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne, was assigned to make an amphibious landing on D-Day, and landed on Utah Beach. Joe served from 1942 to 1946 and also participated in operation Market Garden, and in the defense of Bastogne, where he witnessed the futile attempt of the Germans to force McAuliffe’s surrender.

Joe participated in an interview with the West Point Oral History Department during the Bastogne Banquet Weekend in December of 2016. If you are interested in viewing the video in which he shares the story of his service, please click here.
