Charlie Pete of Lower Post BC, led a sometimes tortured and troubled life. So did his friend Jimmy Dennis. As children, both were taken away from their home on the same day in 1944. And they never saw their families again. Since then their lives have never been the same. Now in their mid 70s, these men have never given up.
