Indiana 1st District Congressman Pete Visclosky was in the Region for the 15th annual Valparaiso Rotary Club Veterans Day Program held at Strongbow Inn today. Visclosky spoke about the importance of celebrating Veterans Day and about the need for Veterans' jobs programs. Visclosky also honored decorated World War II Navy veteran Dr. John Wolf, who served as chaplain in six battles, including the Battle of Iwo Jima. Dr. Wolf—who has written a book about World War II, entitled “Amen! Until Tomorrow”--spoke to an attentive audience as he advocated for peace and he received a standing ovation for his service, and for his work in starting the Veterans Program for the Valparaiso Rotary Club.
