A Heidelberg cub scout stands with World War II veteran Robert Izumi, who happened to meet the Scouts from Heidelberg's Troop 284 Saturday in Bastogne, Belgium, following the annual Bastogne Walk. The walk commemorates the Battle of the Bulge, a fight that lasted 41 days from Dec. 16, 1944, to Jan. 25, 1945, in the cold and snow-covered Ardennes Forest. Izumi joined the Army at 17 years old and participated in the liberation of Bastogne.
