Webco honors local vets


With Veteran’s Day falling on a Saturday, many schools and businesses honored and celebrated their service early. Such was the case at Webster County Nursing Home District, also known as Webco, with the collaboration of Good Shepard Hospice, which held a ceremony honoring the residents who answered the call to serve.

The ceremony consisted of a small speech thanking the vets for their service and singing “God bless the USA.” The veterans were given a certificate, pin, and stars that once flew on flags. The event concluded with the singing of the National Anthem, and cookies passed out.

The following are the names of the residents and the branch they served:

Bob Hamilton - Marines

Howard Baedke- Navy

Monte Dill- Army

X. Gaskill- Navy

Albert Rhodes- Army

Danny Jackson- Army

Vernon Massey- Army

Coy McDonnel- Navy

Charles Marler- Air Force

Bob Wood- Army

Thank you for your service.
