Ron Bellavacqua from Dedham, Massachusetts, has quite a story. His father was in a fighter group that went through Italy supporting the British Aid Army. The film he brought in to digitize was taken by the Army Air Corp. The 79th Fighter Group had a reunion and they dug up the old film reel and transferred the historic film footage to a VHS tape. Ron brought the VHS tape to digitize to a DVD.
Ron is thrilled that now that he has preserved this never-on-the-history-channel-before footage of his Dad’s fighter group at Mount Vesuvius, he’ll be able to share it with his grandchildren.
