Preble County veterans traveling to DC


A busload of local WWII, Korean, Vietnam, peacetime veterans and local officials kicked off their journey to the nation’s capitol early Thursday morning, Sept. 21. At press time, the group was en route to Washington, D.C. to be honored at the memorials built in their honor. The trip will include a visit to the Capitol, a tour of the memorials, a wreath-laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery, and more.
