Veterans Day 2011

On this Veterans Day, the 93rd anniversary of the Armistice, we salute all veterans who walk among us each day, largely unnoticed. Thank you for your gift of service to our country. There will always be the few who don't appreciate you, but rest assured most do--we just fail to say it often enough.

This is the first Veterans Day since the inception of our blog that we have not been able to salute Frank Buckles, our second favorite Doughboy who died earlier this year at the age of 110. If you encounter a World War II veteran today, please tell him or her how much their service means to you personally.


Sources in the Red Bay Police Department have identified the shooter in the David Andrasik death as Hershel D. Graham, 49, 806 10th Street NE. Graham, a one-time professional athlete, is described as having a long standing mental condition; however, sources say he has had no previous serious legal problems in Franklin County. His role in Andrasik's death will be presented to an upcoming grand jury session.
