LA PINE, OR -- Flags in La Pine will fly at half-staff on Saturday, in honor of Bob Shotwell. The world War II veteran passed away in April, at the age of 94. 

 

Shotwell was 19 when he stormed Omaha Beach on D-Day, and went on to serve in three more major actions before the war ended. He came to Central Oregon in the late 1980s and taught journalism at COCC. 
 
A public memorial service with full military honors will be held at La Pine High School tomorrow at 4 p.m. Speakers at the ceremony include his son Michael, author Rick Stieber and Shotwell's longtime friend Lyle Hicks. Members of the Band of Brothers will present a Flag Line.
