Peter B. Cascio
Born in West Hartford, CT, Peter celebrated V-J Day at age 13 with his first glass of champagne! After completing his BA from Middlebury College, and a Masters in Landscape Architecture from Harvard Graduate School of Design, he enlisted in the Connecticut Air National Guard (ANG) for fighter pilot training.
Chosen for Air War College senior officer training in Alabama, Peter also earned an MBA degree from Auburn University. His next assignment was working at the ANG Support Center on Joint Chiefs of Staff war exercises. At the Pentagon, he was ANG Advisor to the Chief of Air Force Plans, and later undertook special projects for the USAF Chief of Staff. Service with the US Army Corps of Engineers took him to Europe and Asia as an automated information system specialist.
Pete flew for TWA for a year, but was furloughed with the advent of the Boeing 707, and returned to his family’s landscape nursery business. He continued to serve with the CTANG.
He is Treasurer of the CYH Resident Council, member of the Building and Grounds PAC, Wildlife Habitat Project, the Green Team, and the Village Life Committee.
