Concord Celebrates a D-Day Hero’s 98th Birthday!


On Saturday, May 9th, over 100 cars with hundreds of people lined up to celebrate Peter Orlando’s 98th Birthday. Peter is a Concordian and a D-Day Hero.

Cars full of adults, kids and dogs lined up and drove by the Concord WWII Veteran who sat in his bench in is driveway and cheerfully waved and thanked all those who drove by. At one point, a group gathered to sing him Happy Birthday and Peter stood up, waved and said “For once, I am speechless. Thank you very much!”.

Cars honking, flags waving, birthday banners blowing – it was a wonderful sight and a great way to bring the community together to honor and celebrate one very special resident.
