La Bella Torte caters to Vietnam Veterans

The La Bella Torte food truck catered to attendees at the Queens Vietnam Veterans Memorial dedication on December 20, 2019. JPCA President Tony Nunziato proposed the idea and the JPCA board voted to sponsor the truck, which provided coffee and pastries to the veterans, their families and distinguished guests. The truck featured a sign welcoming home the veterans, who were not warmly received back in the 1960s and 70s when they returned from Vietnam. The ceremony was moving and inspiring and the story of the memorial is told on page 42. Cover and above photos by Steve Garza.
