Kentuckians at War
Young & Old Gather to Thank U.S. Troops
Elfren Padilla, a U.S. Army veteran, watched the Hardin County Veterans Day Parade on Saturday to support members of the Fort Knox Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps marching in it. “It’s a good reminder ... of all the people out there doing something so (youths) can have all the privileges and rights that they have,” he said. Padilla, a Radcliff resident who works with JROTC, said some, especially young people, tend to criticize things they consider wrong in the world and don’t do anything to resolve the problem.
