Pride and Patriotism: Stamford’s Role in World War II
Lt. Joseph V. Principe was a B-4 bomber pilot in the Army Air Corps. He flew 30 missions over France and Germany.
Joseph Principe’s daughter, Andrea Principe, donated his World War II Army cot from his Army Air Corps training days, as well as a World War II U.S. Army Medical Corps blanket dating to 1944. The donor bought the blanket in 1973 at a tag sale while she was assigned as a Women’s Army Corps training officer at Fort McLean, Alabama.
