Rosario Di Giorgio’s Discharge Papers


Typically, the eldest son was exempt from military duty and the second oldest was expected to serve. Rosario's elder brother Joseph was already running the family fruit business in the U.S., so Rosario enlisted in his stead.

After earning a medal in the “African Campaign,” Rosario Di Giorgio was honorably discharged in 1897.
