Marine hero visits Cassville library

Wednesday, July 29, 2015
Marine Chris Anziano, in conjunction with the library's summer hero theme, visited the Cassville Branch Library Tuesday to talk to children about what it is like to be a Marine and solider. Afterward, Anziano showed Artie Cole, right, 11, of Exeter, grandmother DeeAnn Cole, left, and Branch Supervisor Verna Fry, awards he received while in the Marine Corps. Children asked Anziano what he did in the Marines, had he ever been shot, how long did his training last and how do you become a Marine? Anziano, a 2004 Exeter High School graduate, served eight years and in two overseas deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and has been trained in multiple areas including weaponry, combat, survival, motor transportation, convoys and as a military policeman.
