TREASURE ISLAND, Fla. — What better way to celebrate 100 years of living
than a big parade full of people celebrating you!
WWII veteran, Cpl. Bart Corricelli, is turning the big 1-0-0 so local marines
and police participated in a parade Saturday to mark the golden year.

The parade started at the Paradise Lutheran Church and traveled over the
intracoastal waterway before coming to an end at Corricelli’s house in St.
Cars with decorative signs and patriotic flags filled the streets to celebrate
Corricelli. He said one of the best things about turning 100 is that he has all
of these friends.
“You don’t live this long being a hateful guy,” the cheerful veteran said.
Corricelli served on many WWII campaigns in the Pacific. He was actually
on Iwo Jima when the iconic photo of raising the flag was taken. However,
he and other soldiers were at the other end at Motoyama Airfield No. 1
fighting for their lives.
