Honoring Whitley County's WWII Veterans

(Talk of the Town photo by Jennifer Zartman Romano)
On Saturday, in observance of today's 67th anniversary of the D-Day, a large group of Whitley County's estimated 110 World War II veterans attended an event held in their honor on the Whitley County Courthouse lawn. Above, following the recognition ceremony in which each veteran present was named aloud, thanked and presented with an honor medal, many of the veterans convened for a group photo on the steps of the Whitley County Courthouse to commemorate the day's events, above. Additional photos and coverage of the ceremony will appear tomorrow on Talk of the Town.
