You will not read about these men in the pages of history books. They came from the cities and towns all across America. Their fathers and uncles served in World War I. They grew up during hard times of the 1920’s and 30’s. At a time when the world was in a state of crisis and liberty and freedom hung in the balance these young men, left their families, friends and jobs to serve their country.  Today they are our fathers, grandfathers, uncles, and neighbors. They are the true WW-II Heroes.
