Michelle DeLuca has asked Warriors' Watch Riders and all like minded folks to join her family as they lay her father to rest.

Born in Pennsylvania to Louise and Frank Patsy Deluca, Frank lied about his age to join the English Army. He received the Britain Distinguished Service Medal, Silver Star for gallantry in action, and a POW medal for honorable service while a prisoner of war.

After the U.S. declared war in 1941, Frank was in the OSS, which was considered President Roosevelt’s private army, the equivalent to the Special Forces of today. His missions were to blow up bridges in Europe, go behind enemy lines and free our prisoners, risking his life to save others. He was a POW himself, and finished his military career as a staff sergeant and was honorably discharged in 1945.
