He moved to the U.S. for a better life; his parents never got the chance to follow

97-year-old Polish immigrant Irving Griffel came to the United States at 18,  leaving his family and the old country for a better life. But when WWII broke out, his family never got the chance to follow. It was 1938. Irving Griffel was just 18 when he arrived in the new country. It had been a long journey from his native Poland that had started years prior.
