IN MEMORY OF

John Basilone was a true American warrior, who sacrificed everything to serve his country during World War II. To honor his memory, the Basilone Memorial Foundation has established various initiatives such as the Basilone football field, a ship named USS John Basilone, and the twinning of municipalities. In addition, we have a NASCAR displaying his name, and we have partnered with local organizations to name service dogs after him. Each of these initiatives aims to celebrate John's life and sacrifice in a meaningful way, while also raising awareness of his heroism.
