From a contemporary press report:
Hugh “Tony” Milanese died of cancer on September 4, 2000 at his home in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland. Tony was a retired Chief Warrant Officer and a local artist.
A career Army officer, he served 28 years in counter-intelligence operations in Vietnam, Korea, Japan and Italy, retiring in 1968. He was interred with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. His decorations included two Bronze Stars.
His avocation was oil painting and his work was shown at the Capitol Hill Art League, the Torpedo Factory in Alexandria and the North Beach, Maryland Art Gallery.
He is survived by his wife, Sandra Zampiello Milanese of Chesapeake Beach, Maryland; daughter, Sylvia Milanese Oliver; son-in-law, Lloyd Oliver, both of Arlington, Virginia; and his sisters, Elda Barbolini-Mills, Julia Gentile and Josephine Skurka, all of Long Island, New York, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Michael Robert Patterson was born in Arlington and is the son of a former officer of the US Army. So it was no wonder that sooner or later his interests drew him to American history and especially to American military history. Many of his articles can be found on renowned portals like the New York Times, Washingtonpost or Wikipedia.
