Army Colonel Renato (Ron) Bacci (Ret.)

Bacci is congratulated by his uncle, Master Sergeant L.D. Prince, upon his promotion to colonel.

During a distinguished 30-year career in the Army and Reserves, Renato Bacci did everything from helping a nation recover from war to assisting an American police department in its efforts to return lost items to their owners.
