I thank our men and women who served in the Armed Forces and gave their selfless contributions and sacrifices to enable us to have the freedom we sometimes take for granted. Veterans Day is a time to celebrate veterans, but if you see a veteran any time, any day, please thank them for their service. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing local WWII veteran Harold Frank, who I appreciate greatly for his dedication and love for this wonderful country. Again, thanks for your service, today and every day.
Birthday wishes to: Lori Cobb and Billy Keaton on Nov. 12; Randy Groce and Sylvia Draughn on Nov. 13; and Judy Fay and Jerica Shoemaker on Nov. 18. Anniversary wishes to: Carl Jr. and Pamela Ladd on Nov. 14; Tim and Andrea Goforth on Nov. 15; and Randy and Vicki Groce on Nov. 17.
