Sun. 3:30pm: Warren man saw war as a job

WARREN – Clarence Eshelman defined war as something he was trained to do.

The 88-year-old Warren man served in the U.S. Army Infantry during World War II after being drafted at the age of 18.

Eshelman, who was born in Cleveland on Dec. 21, 1924, has spent most of his life in Trumbull County, moving to Warren in 1979.
