Military Records

As a nation state, Italy has emerged only in 1871. Until then the country was politically divided into a large number of independant cities, provinces and islands. The currently available evidences point out to a dominant Etruscan, Greek and Roman cultural influence on today's Italians.

My grandfather served in the Italian army. He came to American thru Ellis Island at age 27 in 1921, so I assume he served just befor that time. He came to American from Trapani, Sicily. Can I get his records? Any help would be greatly appreciated. <BR> <BR> <BR>Annt
