WILLIAMSTON, Mich. (AP) - Two of six brothers who served in World War II have returned to their Lansing-area hometown to be honored at a parade.

Frank and Andrew Engardio appeared Saturday in the Red Cedar Jubilee parade in Williamston.

They were in Europe at the height of the war. Their four brothers - John, Peter, Pedro and Leonard - also served in World War II. All six survived and returned home.

Their parents, Sam and Mary Engardio, ran a Williamston store that sold fruit, confections, beer and wine. The parents and four brothers are deceased.

Frank is a 95-year-old former Ford Motor employee who lives in California. Andrew is a 91-year-old retired podiatrist who lives in Adrian.
