A North Las Vegas couple is celebrating an astonishing anniversary. Rose and Gordon Uhlman have been married for 70 years this month.
Gordon is 95 years old. Rose is 92. The couple met in North Dakota in 1941. He was a new kid in town, and they met at a bar. Gordon joined the Army and moved to Tacoma, Washington. She later joined him, and they married in May 1942. He served in World War II, driving a tractor that pulled a howitzer in the Battle of the Bulge. Rose worked at home in Washington.
They say putting the needs of their spouse above their own was a key to 70 years of wedded bliss.
"I always called my wife 'sweetheart'. I always tried to help as much as I could and be a good listener if there was something she needed to say, I listened. That worked both ways," Gordon Uhlman said.
