Veteran gets a new roof

Citrus County Chronicle - 9/22/2017

World War II veteran George D. Johannes, U.S. Marine Corps, recipient of two Purple Hearts seen in this frame grab from video, was recently provided with a much-needed roof for his home.

The 91-year-old veteran was injured in Iwo Jima, befriended by Patty Willard, who consequently contacted Bob Sprute, commander of Eugene Quinn VFW post 4337, partnered with Roger Langley, Fraternal Order of Eagles president, and as a result the two organizations facilitated the work being completed.
