The odds were already stacked against Don “Juan” Wentworth before he joined the U.S. Army in August 1946. At 16 years old, he forged military documents to enlist. He was 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighed 113 pounds — roughly 10 pounds less than the minimum — and was eager to abandon a rocky life at home in the Olympia area. Thanks to a sympathetic sergeant, official documents recorded him as being 125 pounds. Wentworth, who turns 86 on June 2 and lives in Freeland, went on to serve in the military for over 30 years in active and reserve roles. He’ll be among the many veterans who will participate in Monday’s Memorial Day service at Bayview Cemetery, beginning at 11 a.m.
