CRYSTAL LAKE – Soon after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor in 1941, Eugene Entrican left his job at a Chicago manufacturing plant and enlisted in the Army, sensing the need to sacrifice to defend the country.
Entrican, who has lived in Crystal Lake since his retirement, didn’t have to go. Then 23 years old, he had a deferment from the military because he was fully employed. But that didn’t stop the Chicago native.
Now 93, he said he saw many of his neighbors and friends enlisting to fight in Europe and the Pacific, and he didn’t feel right about not joining.
