Veterans Day 2012

Today is the 94th anniversary of the Armistice. Today we honor all veterans, but we're going to single out two.

World War II sergeant Euell Stutts recently received his much deserved Bronze Star after 66 years. The honor itself makes him no more a hero than he's always been, but we believe our government should honor such men. Not all chose to serve their country, and not all who served did so honorably.

Congratulations, Sgt. Stutts. The entire Shoals is proud of you.


We also want to honor a second Shoals veteran, a man who no longer lives in the Shoals, but resides in the nearby city of Madison. This man served our country for many years, notably in Desert Storm where he was wounded.

Today this veteran is retired from the military but still serves his community and country in a much less dangerous way. We thoroughly enjoy his insights on Facebook; if you're not familiar with Larry Allen, you should be. Larry's a graduate of Coffee High School and the University of North Alabama.

Larry, we appreciate all you've given for your country and we salute you on Veterans Day 2012.
