Veterans organize parade for 100th birthday

IAVM board member Lorenzo Fiorentino was among a group of Veterans who organized a parade in front of the Jefferson Park home of Hillard Dominowski to celebrate the WW II Veteran’s 100th birthday. Dominowski grew up in Wicker Park and spent six months in a German prison camp during WW II. “About a dozen veterans drove six vehicles, including a 1950s era Marine Corps vehicle, and drove up and down Dominowski’s block bleeping their horns and waving flags before stopping,” Chicago Block Club reporter Bob Chiarito reported. “Then the men got in formation, saluted Dominowski and thanked him for his service and wished him a happy birthday before spending time with him and his family.” “It was so nice,” Lorenzo told Chiarito. “He was asking us questions and we asked him questions. A couple of our Airborne guys asked him where he went for training. He really loved it.”
