Word War II Veteran

World War II veteran Virgil Westdale, 92, of Ada entered flight school in 1940 and signed up for the Air Force after Pearl Harbor. Westdale loved to fly. "It just felt like God had given me that gift," he said. Because Westdale's dad was Japanese, he was asked to leave the air force and was moved to a lower rank in the U.S. Army, where he fought in Italy, France, and Germany. (Grand Rapids Press Photo)
