Taking Pops home to Metuchen, NJ

 
 
 Pop's has long wanted to return to his hometown of Metuchen, NJ. An old classmate was located and offered to show us around town. Pop's graduated High School from Metuchen and immediately went into service during World War II. His brother Richard also went into service and was killed in Germany. Pop's was able to see for the first time, Richard's memorial marker that honors his brother. Metuchen is a beautiful town. Very peaceful and friendly. Pop's friend, Don Wernick was a former mayor of this town. It was a great trip.

I worked for Don Wernick & his brother at their pharmacy on Oak Tree Road during my high school years. I still feel bad about messing up their Falcon station wagons. Delivery was not my forte, but enjoyed working with some great people.
