WWII Veteran / by Justin Merriman

Charles Utz, 82, of Wexford sits in the kitchen of his home surrounded by mementos of his time as a tail-gunner in a B-17 during World War II and his getting shot down over Germany and spending four months as a POW. Perhaps his prized possession is a diary his mother urged him to write after returning home to document his memories of his entire experience.
