They Made the Ultimate Sacrifice

So that others, around the world, might live in peace and freedom. The Pieper twins from Creston, Nebraska were inseparable growing up. So when a recruiting officer said they couldn't serve together on the same ship, they would have none of it. They died that way, together, and are buried today, side by side, at the Normandy American Cemetery. Read these and so many other stories of brothers in our new book, Brothers in Arms.
