LOCAL HERO: Norm Wolak

Norm Wolak stopped by the World Journal to clarify a couple of things after the Huerfano County Commissioners declared March 13 Norm Wolak Day.  He did not receive a Silver Star, but a Silver Cluster.  He says he doesn’t want to take away from those who truly received the honor.  In Norm’s words, “I was just 18 years old, young, dumb, and broke.  My choices, coming from Chicago were the Mafia, the priesthood, or the Army.”  You are still a hero to us, Norm.  Photo by Brian Orr
