Twinning of Municipalities 

Friday January 1st

Here in the states we are surrounded by signs of how John Basilone has impacted our lives.  From his heroic actions on the battle field to the legacy he has left to his family, friends and especially the community. 

This has become more apparent as the prompting of the proposal of twining municipalities between Raritan, NJ and Colle Sannita, Italy. (The home town of John Basilone's father). 

We are truly honored that Johnny's legacy continues to shine both here and abroad.

"Our two towns are united by the heroic figure John Basilone, whose father emigrated from our town to the U.S. at the age of 19 many years ago in 1903". 

The Mayor  of the Municipality of Colle Sannita

Dr. Giorgia Carlo Nista
