All photos c2001 Joe Pizzimenti, not to be used without permission
Joseph Pizzimenti was a unique talent at Croft. He served as a soldier, a musician (playing bass in the jazz band and tuba in marching band), a company bugler, and an artist at woodcarving and painting. He was granted a permit to carry a camera on base which he used to capture his experiences in hundreds of photographs. The image above is a self-portrait of Joe with his Speedgraphic camera. Our thanks to his son, Joe, for sharing these important images with us.
