Community Pays Tribute to Veterans
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.
