GREEN BAY – U.S. Army Cpl. Norman Chernick never told his son, Rick, much about his experience fighting in Africa and Europe during World War II.

Thanks to a family friend and Rep. Mike Gallagher’s staff, Rick knows a little more about his fathers service as a corporal in the U.S. Army and has a few reminders to share with future generations of the Chernick family.
