We’ll be short and only when there’s news to share.

1.    Belleville Sons Honor Roll
The project that began more than 15 years ago, to identify and remember the fallen soldiers from Belleville, N.J., is having long-term effects.

In the past 13 months, Belleville has dedicated thirteen street signs to fallen soldiers from the Civil War, World War I, World War II, Vietnam War and the Cold War.

If we look back at 1999, the Belleville Memorial had a partial list of the lost soldiers, sailors and Marines lost in service. In 2005, using the names of the fallen discovered in my research, the town added more than 150 names, where there had been none, to its Belleville Veterans Memorial on Union Avenue.

The research continues as we learn more information about these Belleville Sons from their families as we prepare to dedicate street signs in their memory.


SATURDAY, NOV. 12, 2016
Street naming for Capt. William A. Branch of Belleville, KIA in the Vietnam War. Washington Avenue and Overlook Avenue, Belleville, N.J. 11 a.m.


2.    Nutley Sons Honor Roll
Don’t tell anyone yet, but we are continuing in our effort to work with the powers-that-be in Nutley to dedicate streets signs for the 140 fallen Nutley Sons.

3.    Book Projects
You may be aware Anthony is juggling three book projects. One project is Nutley Notables Volume 2.
Another project involves research into murder, mayhem and major crime in a typical north Jersey town.
And the third book is that Mosquito Man book simmering on a back burner.

4.    Other Stuff
Anthony continues to shoot photographs around town during his walks. There’s a Facebook page for that.

He also created a Facebook group for Nutleyphotos, old and new. He also moderates Belleville and Nutley groups.

Anthony also maintains the websites and Facebook groups for Kingsland Manor and the Nutley Historical Society.

Don’t forget, books make great holiday gifts. Anthony’s books are all available on Amazon.

Well, that’s it for this issue of Anthony’s World Update

What's it like to sit in a WWII Sherman tank?


They wouldn't let me take it home but ...

"... I sit in the commander seat. The five-man crew is a loader, gunner, driver and assistant driver. Tankers are known to carry a sidearm in case of a Zippo event. These seats around me are empty save for the spirit of the men who rode this beast, the men who saved the world.
 "The war is more than seventy years gone and I am a civilian immersed in World War II. This Draftee smells of fresh paint and grease but not gun powder. My battle station inside this restored, drivable WWII Sherman tank — donated by the West Bank Optimist Club — is the highlight of my daylong tour at the National World War II Museum in New Orleans...."

Patch Drops Buccino's Blog Archives

Hey, folks, I looked at the Belleville-Nutley Patch for my blog posts that everybody liked so much and they seem to be gone.

Maybe you can find them, but I can't. 


Perhaps they needed the storage space for less local stories. I don't know. But I can tell you what that means. That means that you won't be able to find my blog posts about growing up in Belleville in the 1960s on Patch.

You'll either have to look on Anthony's World to see if any are archived there, or you'll need to read them in Greetings From Belleville, N.J. -Collected Writings.
