DATELINE: Dinner at LZ LINO’S. April 1, 2015. Note: There’s an important message way down at the bottom, after the last picture.
The Vietnam Veterans Supper Club honored Dominic Iasparro at Base Camp Lino’s, otherwise known as Lino’s Italian Restaurant.
He was presented with a plaque and a big plate of lasagna. Thank you for your lifetime of service to our community. That’s Tony Cercelli, Dominic Gasparini, Brian Long, and Tony Bove. Sorry Nick, you got cropped out.
Members of the Vietnam Veterans Supper Club honored Dominic Iasparro for over 40 years of service to the citizens of Rockford and Winnebago county. Dominic served with honor and distinction as a member of the Rockford police department for 35 years and then joined the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department for another 7 years.
One veteran said, “We only had to serve on the front lines for 13 months, while our friend, Dom, was on the front lines for over 40 years.
That’s Chuck Larson, below, talking with a lady who came over to our table and thanked the veterans for serving our country. Thank you, too.
After we sang the Star Spangled Banner another patron at Lino’s told our waitress that he’d pay for our dinner. Unbelievable, especially on April Fools Day. What a country.
