(Page 2 of 2)
Upon his arrival in Cairo, Naro was given a new lease on life. He was able to coordinate his travel back home to the United States and was later united with his family in an emotional homecoming as they had believed that he had been killed in the line of duty.
Naro has received numerous citations and awards, including the World War II Victory Medal, the American Campaign Medal, the Presidential Unit Citation, the Honorable Service Lapel for World War II and the Marksman Badge with Pistol Bar.
He currently resides in Rockville Centre with his wife of 63 years, Lena, and has one daughter, Joan, and a granddaughter, Genie, who live in South Hempstead.
The New York State Senate Veterans’ Hall of Fame was created to honor and recognize outstanding veterans from the Empire State who have distinguished themselves both in military and civilian life.
