Lithopolis business owners Bud and Natalee Brobst helped World War II veteran Milton Mapou realize his dream of returning to Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7 for the 75th anniversary of the attack on the United States. The Brobsts made a$2,000 donation to Mapou on Sept. 3 during the Canal Winchester Labor Day Festival. Mapou is a survivor of the Pearl Harbor attack on the USS Detroit and was later reassigned to the USS Pringle that came under attack by Kamikaze pilots at Okinawa. “He said he could see the eyes of the Japanese pilots,” said Canal Winchester Mayor Mike Ebert, who presented the check to the veteran. “He told me he didn’t know how he survived one attack, let alone two.” Natalee said the couple likes to help the community and was proud to help Mapou, who was also the Grand Marshal of the Labor Day parade, return to Pearl Harbor for the first time.
