C-V Wallpapering was a partnership between Lenny and Richard Vitale that lasted for a significant amount of his life. All around the state of Massachusetts, they wallpapered both homes and businesses.
Working with automobiles, vintage movies, gardening, and animals were some of Lenny’s favourite pastimes. As he grew older, he developed a wide circle of friends.
The last ten years of Lenny’s life were spent in Millis, where he made many new acquaintances through Millis Housing.

In Natick, there will be a funeral mass at 10 a.m at St. Patrick’s Church on 44 East Central Street.The funeral home is open from 3 to 7 p.m. on Mondays for visitors.
Arrangements have been made for a funeral service at St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Natick.Veterans who have been wounded or died while serving in the United States Armed Forces on or after April 5, 1917, are eligible for the Purple Heart.
With the Badge of Military Merit, the Purple Heart is the oldest service decoration still granted to US military soldiers, and the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor is located in New Windsor, New York.
A draught bill to “revive the Badge of Military Merit” was given to Congress by Army Chief of Staff General Charles Pelot Summerall on October 10, 1927.
All materials acquired in the case were ordered to be kept for future reference, despite a bill being dropped and the matter being closed on 3 January 1928. One of the many private groups attempting to get the medal reinstated was the board of directors of Ticonderoga’s Fort Ticonderoga Museum.
Work on a new design was secretly restarted by MacArthur’s successor on January 7, 1931, with the Washington Commission of Fine Arts. The freshly resurrected Purple Heart medal was given to Army heraldic specialist Elizabeth Will, who worked in the Office of the Quartermaster General.
Will drew up a sketch of the current Purple Heart medal using general criteria she was given. On the occasion of the bicentennial of George Washington’s birth, a new design featuring his bust and profile was introduced.
In her obituary published in The Washington Post on February 8, 1975, Will’s contributions to military heraldry are well-recognized.
The Purple Heart Trail is marked with a sign on Interstate 35. The Philadelphia Mint’s John R. Sinnock was chosen in May 1931 after the Commission of Fine Arts requested plaster models from three outstanding sculptors for the medal.
The Purple Heart was resurrected on the 200th anniversary of George Washington’s birth, in honour of his memory and military achievements, by War Department General Order No. 3, dated February 22, 1932, issued by the President of the United States.
In short, the United States Armed Forces are the country’s military.The Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, Space Force, and Coast Guard are the six service branches that make up the armed forces.
It is the president of the United States who commands the armed forces and works closely with the federal executive agencies of the Department of Defense (DOD) and Homeland Security (DHS) to develop military policy. The United States has eight uniformed services, six of which are armed.
The United States Armed Forces have played a significant part in American history since their beginnings during the American Revolutionary War.
Through their triumphs in the First and Second Barbary Wars, they contributed to the formation of a national identity. They were crucial in preventing the Confederacy from seceding from the United States during the American Civil War.
After World War II, the National Security Act of 1947 was enacted, which established the present military framework. The National Security Council and the United States Air Force were also constituted as a result of the National Military Establishment Act.
In 1949, the National Military Establishment was renamed the Department of Defense and the cabinet-level Departments of the Army, Navy, and Air Force were consolidated into the Department of Defense.
