MWRD President Spyropoulos and WWII Veteran Angelo Gianopulos

Chicago, IL –In honor of the upcoming Veteran’s Day Holiday, President Mariyana Spyropoulos invited Mr. Angelo Gianopulos, a Cook County resident and WWII Veteran, to MWRD’s November 1, 2018 Board Meeting. Mr. Gianopoulos was given a resolution honoring his service to our country.      

“I don’t know of another individual more deserving of our gratitude and respect. His sacrifice and the sacrifices of all our soldiers and veterans should be honored every day. Mr. Gianopulos is a piece of living history that stood before us today sharing his chilling stories of war, like the Invasion of Normandy and his time serving in General George Patton’s 3rd army. The emotion in his eyes is something I will always remember. It was an honor to meet him,” said MWRD President Spyropoulos.
