Mitchell brothers, vets of WWII, reflect on Memorial Day

John, 96, Marion, 98, and Roy, 92 - the Mitchell brothers remember their service to country and those who didn't return from war. They survive today as living testaments to those who fought in World War II, and on Memorial Day, when the nation remembers those who died in war and its veterans.
