Sons of Italy Foundation Honors Rear Admiral Peg Klein

Order of the Sons of Italy in America has decided to honor Peg Klein for being an exemplary Italian American.  

Peg owes her interest in the U.S military to her father, who was in the Navy Reserves and was a private pilot. Peg describes how her traditional tight-knit Italian family gave her the opportunity to closely watch as her father pursued a career in the military.

She recalls one time when she expressed an interest in becoming a military aviator herself and was told that she could be “a nurse instead.”  Instead of bringing her spirits down, these words motivated Peg even more to become a pilot for the U.S. Navy.

Peg’s many achievements include serving overseas during the War on Terror where she rescued an Air Force pilot who was stranded at sea and serving as the Dean of Students at Naval Academy.  Her passion and commitment to our country is evident in her interview!

Not only is Peg an accomplished military woman; she is also committed to improving educational opportunities in this country.  She says the value of education that she was raised with is closely mirrored in Order Sons of Italy in America.  

Peg thanks her father and her Italian grandmother, who showed her what sacrifice and hard work meant. We would like to thank Peg for her service to this country and the example that she has set for young women all over.
