*The Caccomo Memorial Scholarship is in memory of and honoring Dr. Aurelio M. Caccomo, who immigrated from Rome to the United States in the 1950’s and became a physician, orthopedic surgeon, and Army Reservist. He served his adopted country in the Special Forces and retired as a Colonel. Dr. Caccomo spent the last fifteen year of his life serving at the University of Illinois in Chicago under the Department of Orthopedics and establishing his Family Foundation, which provides these meaningful and impactful scholarships for our veterans. The generosity of the Caccomo Memorial Scholarship foundation is greatly appreciated.
Our judges always have the difficult responsibility of grading such talented and gifted people and we appreciate their time. Thank you to all who applied, and AMVETS wishes all applicants success in the future.
