Edmonds VFW Post 8870 and American Legion Post 66 joined forces on Saturday, Aug 18, to celebrate two members who turned 100 years old – Ed Shepherd, July 4, and Buck Weaver Aug. 9.

Both men are WWII veterans. Ed, left, had his Navy ship USS Helena sunk out from under him, surviving with five shipmates in a raft. Buck flew P-39 fighters in the South Pacific for the USAAC.

Both men live in Edmonds.
