During WW II, Frank R. Strano of Ambridge, Pennsylvania served with the 998th Treadway Bridge Company of the 300th Combat Engineers. “We were not infantry,” Frank says proudly, “although we got shot at a lot. We were engineers.”

Before the war Frank was a steelworker and overhead crane operator with the American Bridge Company. At age 91, he still lives and works in Ambridge.
