The Locally Owned Voice of the Capital Region
Cousin Karen Weaver, along with other family members and friends, welcomes H.J. Wilkin back to Rochester after his "Honor Flight." Karen holds a legendary family photograph of the "Sergeants Four." If you zoom in, that's Dad standing at upper left, Uncle Bill of WWII at upper right; Grandpa Wilkin, a WWI Marine, sitting at left, and Uncle Tom Wilkin, Korean War Marine, at lower right. Story goes that after the guys had the picture taken during the 1950s, a proposal was made to go to a bar or grill. But Grandpa said no ... he was afraid the guys in uniform might have gotten into a fight with bar patrons who might have said something unkind about the military outfits!
