David Hamblett, 86, of Hudson, looks over some photos May 8 at his home in Hudson. He claims he is no hero, but he served his country honorably during World War II. When conflict broke out with Japan, David Hamblett, then in Exeter, decided to enlist in the Navy Reserves. "I signed up for the Navy because I didn't want to be bush-whacking in the jungle," Hamblett said. "Tom Brokaw calls us the greatest generation but there are a lot of generations. From the Civil War on up, anybody been to war they all went through the same thing, different areas, that's all – we (WWII veterans) don't agree that weâre the greatest generation," Hamblett said.
