Veterans Day is Nov. 11. A veteran is a person serving or who has served in a branch of the military. Who is your favorite veteran?
My dad is James Dunivent. He was in the Army. We were talking about the replica Vietnam Veterans Wall that was, on tour, recently, in Conway. He told me about how he was in DC in the Army when the original one was dedicated and President Reagan was there. He thinks he has the original program with Veterans signatures on it. — Tiff Rodgers
My daddy, Thomas George, a Vietnam Vet and my husband, Troy Lehmann, who served in the Army. — Janice Lehman
My grandfather, Roy Jim Underwood who served in Army Air Corps WWII; my dad, David Beckner, served in the Army during Vietnam. Both are deceased. My stepdad, Jack fielder, National Guard. My husband, James Gibson, USMC. My father-n-law, John A Crawford, retired Army. And my brother-n-law and sister-n-law, Jonathan Crawford Regina Nelson, both, currently serving in the Army. Proud of them all. — Michelle Gibson
My dad, Troy Witcher, who served 20 years in the Army then retired to do another 20 plus years with the post office and my son, Brandon Elmenhurst, who joined the Air Force at 17, a young boy, not sure what he wanted out of life, but now is 21, married and a father who is now a man serving his country in Guam. I couldn’t be a more proud mom, granny and daughter. — Trish Witcher
My dad, Tharp Ramsey, who was in the Army during WWII, serving in the Philippines. We didn’t hear many stories of the war because he would not talk about it. One story though was when my Mom went out to California for a visit and when he got to train station. he couldn’t find her. He finally went back to his base and she was sitting in the company commander’s office. Also, I’m proud of my husband, Jim McGraw, who joined the Army and served in Korea. I can’t believe he was a paratrooper and jumped out of planes and helicopters. — Sharon McGraw
Elmer C. Horton who served in WW II. He left his wife and three kids to serve. The letters they wrote to each other....priceless. I think of him every time I face a flag. — Sandy Ragland
D.E. Allen, my brother, USAF; Mike Aeilts U.S. Army; George Erion, U.S. Army; Joel Friant, USAF; Danny Gildner, USAF. — Jim Allen
