      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.
