A group of veterans who now reside at Presby’s Inspired Life’s Rydal Park community in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania was interviewed by WPHL17 for the network’s upcoming Veterans Day special.

The eight veterans, representing all branches of service – Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines – sat down with reporters to discuss their service and what Veterans Day means to them. The residents shared experiences from World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam.

“It’s nice to be remembered,” Herbert Harris, an Air Force lieutenant during the Korean War said during his interview. “It was a pleasure to be involved and I enjoyed serving.”
