There isn’t a single quality that defines heroism. Antoinette De Bellis knows this well, having a family friend in Spc. Blaise J. Flamio who received a Purple Heart for his military service in Afghanistan this past spring. She felt like he, and others in the community, were not receiving enough recognition so she took it upon herself to host a Wounded Warriors fundraiser last week at Our Lady of Lakes Knights of Columbus in Carmel.
