    Shared Memories

     

    Born in 1928 into a proud Polish family living in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Edward Wojack was a twin with 6 brothers and 2 sisters. Ed's parents Regina and Matthew Wojciak had immigrated from Kraków, Poland in the early 20th century and settled in the Midwestern city of Minneapolis.

     Growing up, young Ed spoke only Polish at home, but quickly started learning English when he started school and served as the family translator. Life was a bit more difficult back in those days and his family worked hard to make ends meet. His father Matthew worked at the railroad and his older brothers took his place whenever he was sick. Ed lost his twin brother Mitchell in a tragic car accident when he was just two where he was saved by his older brother Walter.

    Ed grew up on the Mississippi River and in the train yards around Minnesota. Diving off bridges, swimming in the Mississippi, and jumping on and off box cars were just part of life. Ed was an avid reader who did very well in school and went into the Army just after high school near the end of WWII. Ed was sent to Korea to serve prior to the official start of the Korean War, going through the city of Seattle to take a Navy ship to deploy in Korea....
