According to the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs, as of September 2016, there are now 696,000 living veterans of the 16 million Americans who served in World War II

In honor of Veterans Day, we will feature stories of Front Porch residents who served in the armed forces. This is the story of Paul Passi, a Vista del Monte resident who served in Marine Corp after high school. This post is a snapshot, a summary of Mr. Passi’s times in the Marine Corp, created by LifeBio


Paul’s Platoon in the Marine Reserves.
Paul Passi was born on September 9th. He graduated high school and went straight into the Marine Corps, where he served on active duty for four years.

Going to boot camp was a shock for a few days, but Paul soon became accustomed to his new life. He definitely had to be on the ball all the time.

Paul enjoyed being part of a football team while he was serving in China. During his time in Tsingtao, he was on guard duty for some facilities.
