I would like to take a little time today to say thank you for all who gave all for the freedoms I enjoy today.
Recently Henderson County saw three heroes that we remember today return home for the final time.
United States Army Pfc. Samuel Kelly Watkins, who served in the Korean War. Was captured on February 14, 1951 and presumed dead on March 3, 1954. He was captured as he stayed behind to help remove the wounded when the Army was called back.
United States Marine Lance Cpl Jessie Cassada, who was killed in action on January 6, 2009 in Afghanistan.
Chief Warrant Officer 2 Terry L. Varnadore II, dead in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan this year.
Please take the time to leave a comment about someone you know who gave all for our freedoms.
