Norma Bonazzo


As Interviewed by Alex Eleftheriades, March 21, 2019
"For the military that there were so many dead soldiers that they did not take their time like you do here in the United States -- you do so much things for them to say ‘Thank you for serving.’ Over there -- no. They would leave you close to the trash cans and somebody would pick you up."
