When the military took both of Harold M. Spofford's sons during World War II, the Georgetown father insisted that he enlist as well, despite the fact that he was 49 years old. Here he appears in his Seabees uniform on Aug. 12, 1945, with his sons, Harold, left, who was drafted into the Army, and Roland, right, who enlisted in the Navy. The Spofford family photo is included in North of Boston's upcoming book, "Salute to Veterans," along with hundreds of others, all of local service people.
