Watch the interview with Peter Jannuzzi and learn why he created the video.

Hello and thanks for visiting.  My name is Peter Jannuzzi.  I am a pediatrician and veteran who served from 1982-1991 in the US Army Medical Corps. My status as a veteran is really by definition only. My service in no way compares to those who had to endure warfare.  I am trying to raise money to help veterans who served in any conflict  by  helping to support the OASIS center at Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT.   OASIS stands for Operation Academic Support for Incoming Service Members. The center not only provides academic support but acts as a haven for soldiers. The acronym is an apt description. While there, the vets can relax, eat and talk about whatever is on their minds, knowing they will have sympathetic ears to listen to them.  We hope to raise enough to help with mental health services over and above what the VA system provides. Unfortunately, the VA is not always adequate and restricts where soldiers can get their care and medications. The center, like many such groups, is underfunded and dependent on charitable donations. If you are at this site to donate, we sincerely thank you for watching our video and making a contribution.  We assure you it will be put to good use.  If very successful we have the ability to share money with other veteran support groups. Your donation is tax deductible and all of it goes to an account for their support.

The video is by Tom Mazzarella of Mazarella Media. The song was written by Peter Jannuzzi and produced and recorded by Jim Chapdelaine.

Our Sincere Gratitude,

Peter Jannuzzi and Tom Mazzarella

Thank You to the Farmington Rotary Club for having me perform at their annual salute to Veterans Luncheon at the OASIS center we support. They are always so welcoming. I will be meeting Col Jack Jacobs, Medal of Honor winner, author and NBC commentator tonight at an event sponsored by Wells Fargo. Hope to ask for his help on the project as well.

This past Friday I performed right after the very solemn State of Connecticut VFW memorial service at their annual convention in Rocky Hill. It was a great moment and venue. If you want to find heroes in America, they are in the VFW halls and chapters all across this country. I am so grateful for their support. A truly patriotic experience I will never forget.

It was an honor to perform at our Memorial Day services this year, we could not show Tom’s fantastic video but I was able to sing American Way. Thanks to all those who attended and for your continuing support. Next Friday we will be at the state VFW convention in Rocky Hill. Really looking forward to that.
