    WNEP wrote the wrong information Mr. Solosky was drafted and served in the Army as a Captain who served overseas and saved a lot of lives! Then when he returned homewhen he was given the great honor and responsibility of overseeing the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It was a pleasure to meet this great man! Please give him the respect he deserves I was at his event awarding him with his Veterans pin and pen. Thank you
