Commissioner Dave Coder added, “Greene County residents should be very proud of the many local veterans who served our country, and never forget those who paid the ultimate price.”
And Commissioner Archie Trader acknowledged the veterans “who have fought with fortitude to defend our great nation and its way of life.”
