Buck Weaver of Edmonds, 99, a WWII fighter pilot in the Pacific, met with Navy Lt. Dan Landerholm of Edmonds recently for breakfast at Claire’s Restaurant in Edmonds.

Landerholm, who graduated from Edmonds-Woodway High School and Washington State University, is a 30-year-old Navy F-18 fighter pilot stationed in Lemoore, California, who next week will be headed to the Persian Gulf on the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier, based in San Diego.

Weaver flew 137 combat missions in WWII as an Army Air Force pilot, then went to dental school and served as commander of dental service at the Air Force Academy, retiring as a colonel.

Joining them at Claire's were Edmonds veterans Art Kennedy, Hubie McMorrow, Pat Fahey and Dennis Parker.
