Somethings been going on in this country for quite a while now, and that is more and more members of America's greatest generation, who fought and died to save the world from fascism, are disappearing at a phenomenal rate.

So when these kinds of stories show up in the papers, it warms my heart and makes me grateful for their sacrifices. So, thank you Joe... I salute you.

The Wolfenberger's are a wonderful family. I am proud of the life Joe led, the sacrifices he made and the wonderful legacy he has left behind. Thank you Joe and thank you to his beautiful wife Barbara for being such special people. Lots of love, the Museum Staff and Volunteers
