The David J. Wenzel Treehouse Holiday Lights Honor Guard

These Holiday Lights Soldiers make a fitting honor guard for the entrance to the David J. Wenzel Treehouse.  While serving as a First Lieutenant in Vietnam in 1971, David Wenzel was severely wounded and suffered the loss of both legs, his left hand and the use of one eye.  His injuries did not slow him down much as he went on to earn an MBA in 1974, work in a number of government positions, and serve as Scranton's twenty-seventh mayor from 1986-1990.  Recent activities include authoring a book about Scranton's mayors and working as an adjunct professor for the University of Scranton and Lackawanna College.
