AVIATION HIGH SCHOOLPosted on 10/5/15 - by Diane Amodio Verola email@example.comMy father taught at Aviation High School and was the coach of the rifle team. I didn't really know Pete, but my Dad always spoke very highly of him. He came to see my father right before he shipped out and I can still remember that night.
