Community Pays Tribute to Veterans

Nov 11, 2012

Ed Schwab of Woodburn always acknowledges members of the military he comes across. “No matter where I am, no matter what I’m doing, when I see someone in uniform, I say thank you,” said Schwab, a veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard who served from 1968 through 1972. He feels strongly about thanking those in service because when he returned from Vietnam, no one said thank you to him, and in fact, some people spit in his face, he said.

Veteran Roger Miller, of Bowling Green, Ky., who served in the United States Army from 1957-1964, salutes the flag as the national anthem is sung by Ron Tabor during a Veteran's Day ceremony held at the Warren County Courthouse on 10th Street, Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012 in Bowling Green, Ky. The ceremony, which followed Saturday's Veterans Day parade, included remarks from Lt. Col. Richard Palmer, Warren County Judge-Executive Mike Buchanon and Bowling Green mayor Bruce Wilkerson.
