SACRAMENTO - He's a member of the greatest generation, but a home invasion has left him on life support.
John Masson, 92, was at his North Highlands home last week when suspects broke in and attacked him in the middle of the night.
Family members said it does not look good for Masson. Now, the only comfort the family has would be finding the people responsible for the attack and bringing them to justice.
Masson was leading an active life, even taking care of his step-daughter Akemi Girion, who was paralyzed in an accident three years ago. Girion said helping others came naturally to her father after a lifetime of service.
"World War II, Korean War and the beginning of Vietnam War, and my mother stopped it, enough is enough," Girion said.
