Three brothers went to war; two came home

April 3, 2011

By TERRY NAU
PAWTUCKET -- It seems like every person who lived through World War II has a story to tell. The war impacted everyone in the country back in the 1940s. Young men were drafted or enlisted in the military. Some able-bodied men worked in essential jobs and were required to continue in those jobs to help produce war materials for use by our armed services.
Women moved into the work force, too, gaining a foothold in the working world that they would never lose.
