WW II veteran participates in walk

John “Yosh” Wapienik, center, of Marquette was the only World War II veteran to walk in the Memorial Day Warrior Relief Fund Walk recently. Wapienik, who is shown with state Rep. John Kivela, D-Marquette, left, and Marquette City Manager Bill Vajda, participated in the three-mile walk with his daughters and his grandchildren only months after battling stage four lymphoma. He is now in remission. Wapienik served with the 47th Infantry in World War II.
