  1. This is my brother’s late father. Joe Kiely received The Silver Star on February 29, 1944. He died of his wounds on March 1, 1944, two days before his 26th birthday, in Anzio, Italy, during Operation Shingle. He was survived by my war widow Mom, Helen, and my then 6 month old brother, Joe, Jr.
