World War II vets gather each month for lunch

Each month at the Peak Grill in Colorado Springs they come.  World War II veterans get together to laugh and cry and remember.

Master Sgt. Edwin Beck spend six months in a German prison camp.  He says you can see a movie about it, or read about, but to understand you have to live it.

Jesse Boyd was a Morse Code operator, Millicent Young was a pilot.  Young received the Congressional Gold Medal for her sacrifice.  But she said it wasn't a sacrifice, it was an investment in her country.

Their numbers shrink each year and every month they savor their time together over lunch.
