The O’Brien brothers in 1942. Four joined the military during World War II, while one received a deferment to help his father run their Vermont farm. From left are George; Jack, who served in the infantry in Europe; Bill, who flew bombing raids over Germany as a B-19 navigator in the Army Air Corps; and Bob and Jim, who both went to the Pacific with the Marines. Bob and Jim O’Brien were not in the same unit — but they met up by coincidence when both were sent to Okinawa.
