ANAHEIM, CA - (May 23, 2015) - As our nation celebrates Memorial Day this weekend, the City of Anaheim would also like to salute local resident, WWII veteran and Bronze Star recipient Dr. William Kott by featuring him in the launch of the City’s new Hometown Heroes video series.

Dr. Kott served in General George S. Patton’s Third U.S. Army, fought in the Battle of the Bulge and helped liberate the Buchenwald concentration camp. He returned home when many of his fellow comrades and friends did not. We honor those men and women on Memorial Day.

Upon returning home from WWII, Dr. Kott married his wife Eleanor, and in 1957 they settled in Anaheim and raised a family. A successful dentist and maxillofacial surgeon, he wanted to do more for his community and served on the Anaheim City Council (April 1976-April 1979), as well as other Boards and Commissions.

We invite you to learn more about Hometown Hero Dr. William Kott, by visiting the City’s YouTube channel.
