Longtime Monessen resident and WWII Veteran, Major Scipio White, U.S. Army-Retired celebrated his 100th birthday on July 27th.

Major White

White served in the 93rd Infantry Division in the Pacific Theater during WWII (the photo on the left shows a young Lieutenant White). After being drafted he attended Field Artillery Officer Training and earned his commission as a 2nd Lieutenant. He witnessed the surrender of Japanese forces on the island of Morotai in August 1945. After 37 years of service (active duty and reserve) he retired from the Army Reserve in 1978.

White is also a retired postal employee. He was recently honored by the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (of which he is a Life Member) during a birthday party in his honor. In the photo on the right in addition to Major White is (left to right) his sister Pamela Wilson, Shirley Taylor, a close family friend and his sister Francine White who traveled from Maryland for the occasion.
