Local WWII Veteran and Daughter Release Book


After more than 60 years of silence, a local World War II veteran is sharing his story in a new book.

Bill Behrens, 92, co-wrote “Soldier 37483425” with his daughter Carol Behrens Bell.scenes he didn't talk about until just a decade ago.

"After you've been through it and everything, it's hard a lot of times. Even yet today at certain spots, why I’ll break up. It never leaves you," said Bill.

Bill said, as a stevedore, he was taught to move supplies, not fight.

The book is available for sale on Amazon.
