Theirs has been called "the Greatest Generation."
They remember Pearl Harbor, they've seen D-Day, and watched several major U.S. conflicts abroad.
Friday evening, eleven World War II veterans were honored for their service with their family and friends gathered around.
"I'm 91 years of age now," said veteran Dr. Dan Callahan.
He turned back to the days he was a medic on the battlefield.
"Go out and drag somebody in that's been hit, hurt, or shot," said Callahan.
Many of the men honored Friday night can recall getting treated by medics like Callahan. One vet says he was even pronounced dead.
