The lead-in to the story is as follows:  "The community of Arcola used the painting of murals by the Walldogs as a backdrop this weekend to honor one of their own World War II heroes who served in the Invasion of Normandy.  Of the 15 Walldog murals, which depict historic themes of Arcola, one is dedicated to Joe Ernst for his service in the Navy and for his service of a different kind. Carol Vorel explains."
