From nose gunner to poppy seller - but it is part of the same thing - doing what needs to be done in time of war - and supporting veterans.

Roscoe Mitchell is a Veteran of the US Army Air Corps during WWII.  He was a gunner in the nose of B-24s and B-17s in the European Theater of Operation.

This Saturday, Roscoe was at Central Market in Shoreline, as a volunteer from the Veterans of Foreign Wars - VFW Blackburn-Aurora Post 3348 in Shoreline  - selling "Buddy Poppies" to help support local veterans' programs.
