More than 30,000 people have participated in the Veterans Breakfast Club's programs and activities over the past 10 years. The nonprofit organization is dedicated to sharing veterans' stories with the public. DePastino also is author of the award-winning book Bill Mauldin: A Life Up Front and six other books.
