And as an infantry captain in World War II, Art Holst learned to educate, train and motivate troops to react to challenging times.
Art Holst is best known for his humor and as a Sunday Zebra officiating for the National Football League for 15 years. He officiated four Championship games and two Super Bowls. At 95, Art is still helping out his fellow veterans as a spokesman for Fisher House Michigan.
