Birth: Jul. 23, 1922
Death: Nov. 30, 1942

A case where Truth that is stranger than Fiction. This is the case of the Perugini brothers, Frank and Tony. They were born on the same date, July 23, only two year apart. They were living in two separate states when, during World War II, they decided to join the military. Not knowing what the other was doing, they joined the Navy in separate states, on the same day. They were assigned to the same ship, the cruiser New Orleans. During the Battle of the Solomon Islands they were in the same gun turret when the ship was hit by a torpedo and both were killed on that same day.

These burials are in Old Catholic Cemetery not Calvary. There are memorials there for them already.
