Santoriello – a graduate of Dickinson University – was awarded the Purple Heart, posthumously, and is also buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
Neil Santoriello and his wife, Diane, were among family members of 23-fallen servicemen and servicewomen, who signed a letter from votevets.org – sent to Republican Presidential nominee Donald J. Trump – this week — demanding an apology from Trump, for his comments about the Khizr Khan family.
