Jon Halsey made writer stop and think

Jon Halsey made me stop and think with his reply to my not liking the use of big words where two everyday words would do better!

We all have things we like to do and we have things we donít, Johnís is words and there meaning he likes cross word puzzles and because of my bad spelling I don't. My apologies for stepping on what his past time is because it doesn't mean much to me is not a reason to stop him from what he likes to do.

I was out of order for sure this time and was thinking more about my likes and dislikes than that of his. My apologies to him. - Ralph Roy Waggener

JIM: Russell County's Forgotten Warriors of World War Two

"Not every soldier died a hero, but every soldier died a hero's death."

By JIM

The names of at least nine Russell County men who perished while on active duty during the World War Two era do not appear on the Honor Plaque on Monument Square in Jamestown.

America's active military involvement in World War Two began on December 8, 1941 with a declaration of war against Japan, and it ended in mid-August 1945 with that nation's unconditional surrender. However, the deaths of military personnel -- regardless of cause -- which occurred between May 27, 1941 and the end of 1945 are considered to be war-related.
