A Family of Service

When James E. Keown joined the United States Air Force in 1948, he couldn’t have known that his four younger brothers would all decide to follow in his footsteps and serve in the military, but they did. “It was just like a chain reaction,” said Donald Keown. In total, the Keown brothers have 53 years of service to their credit and they all now have bricks in the Veterans Memorial Garden at Bowling Green's Old Courthouse.
