Veteran appreciates recognition from media, community

info@islandpacket.comOctober 7, 2012 

I was one of 85 veterans honored Sept. 26. Many thanks to Palmetto Electric Cooperative; my guardian, Duane Anderson, who took care of me as if I were his dad; Janet Freeman of Palmetto Electric; WTOC reporter Jaime Dailey; and The Island Packet's David Lauderdale for his great article.

And thanks to all the folks who volunteered across this state to make this possible. You sure know how to treat our veterans.
