Story of 7 brothers in WWII is remarkable

-A A +A

By Dr. Paul Kengor, The Center for Vision and Values

This time last year, I did a commentary on five brothers who served in World War II. Very impressive.
Imagine my surprise when someone who caught the commentary sent me a package with this note:   
“Dear Professor Kengor: Your [commentary] about the family whose five sons served in WW II was interesting. You might be interested to know about families who had more than five sons who served in WW II.”
Well, Ted Walters of Uniontown, Pennsylvania, certainly had my attention.
He continued: “My mother, Stella Pietkiewicz, had seven sons serve in WW II. She had the honor to christen the plane, Spirit of Poles, because she had the most sons who served in WW II.”
Yes, seven sons.
Along with Ted Walters’ letter was an old newspaper clipping that showed six Pittsburgh-area mothers, all of Polish descent, who had 33 sons in service. Anna Lozowska, Maryanna Sawinska, Katarzyna Antosz, and Mrs. Joseph Wojtaszek each offered five boys to the cause.
Honorta Lachowicz provided six sons. Stella Pietkiewicz took the prize with seven.
Bless their souls. These moms gave their boys to the cause of freedom.
