    Notes 
    • My dad Joseph Lawrence Lepoma was a driver in the U.S. Army and was shipped to Italy. He enlisted on July 6, 1944 and must have shipped not long after basic to Italy. Toward the end of September, my mother was living with my Aunt Mildred Penny because she was nine months pregnant and due any day. There was a knock on the door and the feared telegram deliverer was outside. Seeing him through the window, my mom immediately fainted. My Aunt answered the door and received the telegram. She opened it and and read that my dad Joseph Lawrence Lepoma had been injured in a explosion when the jeep he was driving ran over a land mine and he was thrown from the jeep. He had a bad back injury and was returning to the states. I am trying to find out more about his injuries and medals that he received but the records of his service was destroyed in a fire with many other records of military personnel from World War II. --by Judy Lepoma
