Navy and Army WWII veterans

These two WWII heros were honored last week at our weekly Eagan Rotary lunch meeting during our annual Veterans Recognition program. Burt Eppen, on the left, served on a naval ship in the Pacific Ocean while Harold Brick ended up as a prisoner of war in Germany. Both of them told amazing stories and accepted a special award. Bravo, boys, bravo!

  8. What, you didn't have a camera with you? What kind of a CDP blogger are you, anyway?

    Sheesh!

    They look to be a couple of nice fellows who probably went through some hell back then.

  9. I bet they told some amazing stories. It's good for young people of today to be able to meet, and listen to, men like these. They can learn a lot.

  10. Leif, Photos such as these offer such a contrast to former vs modern day conflicts. I wish that we could end them all!
