"The biggest thing is loyalty to your buddy." - Jake Simonitsch
A prisoner of war for 15 months in WWII, Jake Simonitsch knows the meaning of the words "loyalty" and "buddy". The camaraderie and support men showed one another in the trying circumstances of a POW camp fashioned the character and quality of a life that would serve in two wars and raise a family that continued service to our country, including the ultimate sacrifice. No wonder they call this the "Greatest Generation".
