After graduating high school in 1951, he served in the USAF for 38 years retiring in 1989 at the rank of Brigadier General. He worked for NASA for 20 years, working on the manned programs of Mercury, Gemini, and Deputy Manager of the Space Shuttle program.

He was actively involved in the Order of the Sons of Italy, helped develop the Douhet-Mitchell award and was a Knight in the Italian Court. He received multiple honors throughout his life including the Marconi award.

Tony's biggest accomplishment in his eyes would be his family. He instilled in us a love of family and the importance of maintaining a strong connection both here in the United States and in Italy.
