Memories of war remain vivid, even after 60 years
Sixty years ago this week, a young Nick Golz was hunkered down with his U.S. Army unit in Luzon, Philippines awaiting orders.
"The opposition at that point had pretty much been vanquished," he recalled.
At 17 years old, Golz looked barely 15 when he enlisted in the service.
"Maybe it's stupidity, but I thought I had to go over there and help out. At 17, you're kind of gung-ho and patriotic."
