Vietnam War Veteran Honored Today

This morning after church, Compatriots Geoff Baggett, Jerry Burlingame, and Tony Dothsuk honored one of their fellow church members with the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter’s Veteran’s Appreciation Medal.  The honoree was David Smith, who served in the famed 25th Infantry Division in the Vietnam War.

David joked that his ancestry is Canadian and his people were Tories who fled the United States into Canada during the Revolutionary War.

We honor him for his valiant service to our country in wartime.
