World War II veteran Joe Hoberman, of Loveland, says, every night, he says a prayer for the soldiers who died on the battlefields.

On this Veteran's Day, we share a 2017 conversation Nathan Heffel had with Joe Hoberman of Loveland and Le Moyne, "Lee" Anderson of Fort Collins. They were part of a group of Colorado World War II veterans awarded France's highest decoration, the National Order of the Legion of Honor, for their service in the war.
