MACHIAS, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- On a rainy morning in Machias, Robert Coles' longtime friend and travel companion Dennis Boyd is getting all their packing done for their big trip to Pearl Harbor.
"short sleeve short for him, pairs of slacks," says Boyd as he rifles through the piles of clothes he's packing.
He's doing it all under the watchful eye of Coles, the 92 year old World War II veteran and Pearl Harbor survivor was sporting his dress uniform and sitting in an easy chair in his living room.
"The word anxiety is playing a big factor in how I'm feeling," Boyd admits. Robert Coles is a little anxious too, but excited about the chance he might connect with anyone he served with.
