Through the Eyes of a Hero
This July, Josie Zunno and I took a road trip to visit her family in the Pennsylvania area, a cousin she hadn’t seen in over 60 years. We also visited Pete Wisnoski, her uncle who is now in his early 90s.
His story is captivating. He fought five battles in WWII, has the Good conduct Medal, along with quite a few others, I saw them displayed in a case. He came home, went to college and met the love of his life; they were married for 65 years until her passing three years ago.
He continues to give back to his church and belongs to many charitable organizations to help the underprivileged.
He said you know I found that serving during WWII were a blessing, he explained, I was blessed to serve the greatest country on Earth, and because of the GI Bill, I was able to get my education to have my home for my family.
Imagine that, humble and grateful as most from that generation are known to be, I am grateful and honored to have had the privilege to meet him and grateful to all our troops who serve and protect this Great Country!

Ever Wonder Why
When cheese gets its picture taken, what does it say?
Why horrific means to make horrible, does terrific means to make terrible?
