• Anthony Palermo Memorial Page

    U.S. Army Captain Anthony Palermo was from 1st Battalion, 18th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division. Palermo was on his second tour of duty in Iraq when he was killed April 6, 2007 by an IED in Baghdad.

    This site was built to help raise funds for a plaque in honor of Captain Anthony Palermo. Palermo grew up in Brockton, MA where the plaque will likely be placed somewhere on the Brockton High School grounds. The plaque design will be unveiled at the Battle of the Badges II event at the Boston Athletic Club in South Boston on April 24, 2010. Details on the ceremony dedicating the plaque's placement will be announced at a later date.
