On June 6, 2013 The Long Island City Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2348 located in Astoria, NY was officially renamed after World War II veteran and Astoria resident Rocco Moretto, who was recognized for his service and longtime dedication to the post.
Rocco Moretto is a U.S. Army veteran, who was drafted in February 1943 and served in Europe as a combat infantryman with Co. C, 26th Regiment, 1st Infantry Division. He landed with his unit on Omaha Beach in Normandy June 6, 1944, and fought with his unit in every major engagement for the rest of World War II, including the Battle of the Bulge and the Battle of the Huertgen Forest. He remained in combat for 11 months until May 8, 1945, known as Victory in Europe Day.
During that period, Moretto was one of only two men from his original company of 219 who survived without being captured or wounded. He was discharged as a staff sergeant and returned home in 1945.
Following the war, Moretto worked for the Pennsylvania Railroad, later Amtrak, until he retired in 1985. He has received a number of honors, including in 2004 when he was presented the Legion of Honor Award from the government of France, the country’s highest military honor. Moretto is a longtime member of the United War Veterans Council of New York, post commander of American Legion Post 6 in Manhattan and has been affiliated with VFW Post 2348 for more than 45 years.

With a VFW membership, you'll find all this and more! Further, your VFW membership establishes your place in the VFW legacy that dates back to our founding in 1899.
Your dues of just $45.00 will cover the cost of your membership for a full calendar year as a Member-At-Large for your state. ($1.98 of your membership dues goes toward your VFW magazine subscription.)

The VFW was founded for one single purpose: to ensure those who’ve protected our freedom are protected in return. This protection comes in the form of programs, standing up for veterans rights in Washington D.C., and reaching out to help communities across America. The hard truth is, we can’t do this without your generosity. Thanks in advance for your consideration.
The VFW offers many ways to show your support for America’s veterans, service members and their families!
