EATON — Preble County Veterans Services still plans on holding its biennial trip to Washington D.C. in 2021, according to Director Cole French.

The trip takes a group of veterans from Preble County and visits famous landmarks such as Arlington Cemetery, the U.S. Marine Corps War Memorial, WWII Memorial, Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial and the Flight 93 Memorial. 53 veterans and their families last took the trip in 2019.

Though the trip is in the early planning stages, French said that the trip will ultimately depend on where things stand with COVID-19 come time to travel.

The outing will be the first for Preble County Veterans Services under French, who took over last year after previous director Terry Pendergraft stepped down after 17 years in the role. Pendergraft helmed six trips to Washington D.C.
