Mr. Wojtaszek can also be seen with the Wolves mascot. As a member of the 82nd Airborne Mr Wojtaszek participated in the D-Day invasion as well as the invasion of Sicily and the Battle of the Bulge.

Mr. Wojtaszek always participates in the annual Memorial Day Observance held by the Niles VFW Post 7712 and is also a participant in the Veterans History Project.
