Jim Ingaragiola at 93
The video starts with Jim singing at Karaoke, where he is a star. It then tells of his happy boyhood in Brockton.
We then hear Jim’s memories of fighting the Japanese in the Pacific; some of the most compelling you may ever hear.
Lastly, we conclude with his heartfelt acknowledgement of his beloved family.
While this is a longer video, it is well worth your time to spend 40 minutes with this outstanding member of The Greatest Generation.
