Rocco currently resides in Astoria, New York, where he remains active with many Veteran centered organizations, specifically the Rocco Moretto VFW Post 2348. He attends parades, speaks at NYC schools and conducts interviews with local newspapers.
This June will mark two milestone anniversaries: The 70th Anniversary of D-Day (June 6, 2014) and Rocco’s 9oth Birthday (June 20th, 2014).
Despite his claims that he isn’t a hero,“I’m no hero. I was just doing my job as a soldier. The real heroes didn’t make it back.”, he will always be seen as such by his friends, veterans and especially his family.
