Return to Pearl Harbor: Father's Day

Judith Durkee and Wally Wentz Judith Durkee and Wally Wentz

FORD ISLAND, Hawaii (WXOW) – Each of the veterans on this week's trip to Pearl Harbor is being escorted by a guardian – someone who paid his or her own way to help a respective veteran travel.

Judith Durkee is traveling with Wally Wentz; and while the latter may not be the former's biological father, he's acted like it for as long as both can remember.

Durkee's father was lost in World War II.

Once the battles ceased, her mother began dating Wentz. 

Since Durkee still wears a pin with her biological father's picture on it, she got to spend this Father's Day with both of her Dads.
