U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., brought her presidential campaign to Iowa on Sunday, the day after her birthday and the day before Memorial Day. She talked with World War II Army veteran Eugene Yetmar from Fort Dodge. He served in Germany, as did his brother Melvin. After returning home, the brothers discovered they were serving only one mile from each other. Sen. Klobuchar, noting that Monday is Memorial Day, thanked Eugene Yetmar for his service and sacrifice. He will turn 93 next Friday.
