Today’s Star Spangled Salute honors 99-year old World War II veteran Lou Pioli.  In 1942 Lou was attending Niagara University in upstate New York, studying to become a dentist.  Then, he was drafted into the Army.  Lou served as a trooper in France and flew military gliders.  After the war he worked in the insurance business and started a family.  Lou was very proud of his time at Niagara University and with the help of his daughter, the University bestowed on to him an honorary degree.   Thank you for your service Lou.
