George Ciampa, World War II veteran and Valorous TV Advisory Board member, was featured Sunday on ABC7 News regarding his experience on the beaches of Normandy. The 93-year-old not only fought on the battlefields, but he’s also now bringing his experiences about the atrocities of war to generations who may know little about it.
“It’s my mission is to teach the young in particular, about the high price of freedom,” Ciampa said.
The World War II veteran fought at the Battle of the Bulge and D-Day. He now takes his life experiences on the battlefield to teach students in high school classrooms.
“You’re seeing death every day, in all shapes and forms. You remember you know the high price of freedom,” Ciampa said. “We handled 75,000 dead bodies, that’s American and German. We initiated 17 temporary cemeteries. We saw bodies in every shape that you can imagine. And more.”
Ciampa says that’s what he did for 11 months.
