When We Went to War

When We Went to War

In the spring of 1994, as the 50th anniversary of D-Day approached, News-Gazette reporters and photographers spread out across East Central Illinois, interviewing nearly 200 people – most of them veterans of World War II – for publication in a special newspaper insert.

With the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor upon us, it seemed an appropriate time to retell these memories and share them with you again, in a more permanent format.
