On February 19, 20114, the Cottontails Park in Manduria, Italy, was the setting for the dedication of the first 3 trees planted in the honor of 450th veterans, William Haines Sr, Paul Vegna, and Pete Garbarini Jr.
A school child has adopted the tree, to accept the responsibility of caring for it, and to learning more about the veteran it was planted for and dedicated to.
