During the massive commitment of American manpower to military service during World War II, it wasn't uncommon for brothers to be in uniform at the same time. Such was the case with the Pollock brothers of Riverton 70 years ago this month. All three were Navy men. The eldest, Navy seaman first class Eldon B. Pollock, was aboard ship in the South Pacific, where the U.S. had been in combat since 1941. Russell E. Pollock was an aviation radio man stationed aboard a ship in the Atlantic, and Harold J. Pollock was nearing completion of signal corps training at Camp Peterson in Idaho before receiving his deployment orders.
