A Reminder of Veterans events Feb. 14, 2011
February 14, 2011, is also an Adair County Veterans Day
by Linda Waggener
Those of us who've never looked directly into the eyes of enemies of freedom, we who have not yet stood on the front lines of battle, can not do enough to support our Veterans who have done so. However, we can take this one small step in the right direction at a special event in their honor tomorrow morning, Monday, February 14, 2011.
At 8amCT, a Veterans Appreciation Breakfast will be held at the Adair Courthouse Annex, 424 Public SQ, Columbia, KY, hosted by Adair County Judge Executive Ann Melton and Columbia Mayor Mark D. Harris. Columbia City Councilman Robert Flowers will be the keynote speaker. Veterans and a guest are invited to the complimentary breakfast.
At 10amCT Veterans and guests and the public are invited to attend the dedication and unveiling of the Veterans' Memorial Bypass sign at the northern terminus of the Columbia Bypass. KY Senate President David Williams and a favorite Adair County daughter and Republican candidate for Secretary of State, Hilda Legg, will be speaking at this event.
Clicking this link Veterans List will take readers to a list of every single Adair County Veteran we have been able to research and recognize to date. ColumbiaMagazine.com welcomes the addition of more names as they are received and added to the list.
This posting is dedicated to the United States Army Veteran I honor most with my life, my father, Earl Reid Marcum, who fought in the Philippines during WWII, came home to settle in to helping his dad, William David Marcum, on the farm in Sulphur Well, KY, and was never really able to speak of what he'd experienced there.
When my brother Keith or I would explore his few personal items and ask him about a tattered sepia photo of an exotic person, a medal or a sea shell necklace he'd sent home to his mother, Dad would get a faraway look in his gentle brown eyes, offer a sad smile and patiently change the subject. I'm posting a photo of him along with his note. I miss you, Dad. -Linda
