Letter to the Editor: Remembering those who have served from Concord Township
To the Editor:
As Veterans Day approaches, may this be a tribute to those who are a part of the legacy of military service in Iredell County. Thanks to all who have served the cause of freedom in the past or present -- and those who who will serve in the future.
I have compiled a partial listing of Veterans' names from Concord Township, from the former Scotts High School, who have given their pledges for military service over the years. As the saying goes, “Well done, good and faithful servants.”
Thank You to: ABSHER, ALEXANDER, ANDERSON, BALDWIN, BEATTY, BECKHAM, BELL, BENFIELD, BOLLINGER, BOWIE, BOST, BOWMAN, BRADY, BREWER, BROWN, BUNTON, BUSTLE, BYERS, CAMPBELL, CATES, CHILDERS, CLOER, COOK, COMBS, CONGER, CLANTON, CROWSON, DAGENHART, DAVIDSON, DAVIS, DEAL, DeCHAMPLAIN, DOUGLAS, DRYE, EDWARDS, ELLIS, ERVIN, FEIMSTER, FINK, FORTNER, FULBRIGHT, FULP, GALLYON, GIBSON, GODFREY, GOODSON, GRAY, GRYDER, GUY, GRIFFIN, GROSE, HAGER, HALL, HALYBURTON, HARPE, HATTEN, HARRIS, HATCHER, HEDRICK, HINES, HOKE, HOLDSCLAW, HILDERBRAND, INGRAM, IVEY, JENKINS, JOHNSON, KING, KEIGER, KERR, KYLES, LACKEY, LAMBERT, LANDS, LAZENBY, LEFEVER, LENTZ, LEWIS, LIVINGSTON, LITTLE, LOFLAND, LOWRANCE, MASSEY, McCOLL, McCURDY, McDONALD, McKINNEY, McLAIN, McNEELY, McHARGUE, MENSCER, MEREDITH, MILLER, MOODY, MOORE, MOOSE, MOORHEAD, MORRISON, MORROW, NICHOLSON NORTON, PAYNE, PARDUE, PARLIER, PERKINS, PHARR, PREVETTE, PRUITT, REID, REYNOLDS, ROBINSON, RUFTY, RUFFIN, SCOTT, SHARPE, SHERRILL, SHUFORD, SICELOFF, SIDES, SIMMONS, SOUTHERS, SPRINKLE, STAPLES, STARRETTE, STEVENSON, STEWART, STOUT, SUMMERS, SULLIVAN, THOMAS, TROUTMAN, WALKER, WARREN, WATT, WAUGH, WESTON, WHITE, WILCOX, WILEY, WILLIAMS, WILSON, WOODSIDES, and VINSON.
