Thanks to Solomons Words for covering this fitting event on Veterans Day.

The one to thank for this coverage is our County Commissioner, Paul Heimel, who covered this event and shared it with any of the media that wish to use it. Paul publishes Potter County Today, a website chronicling events and information in Potter County that may be of interest to County residents. Thanks Paul, you are genuinely appreciated.

God bless the Maynard family. Also God bless the family of Eddie Tubbs of Coudersport. I was a kid when I saw the newspaper articles about Bruce and about Eddie losing their lives in that war. It really hit home for us then. I wonder if any of Eddie's family is still around? They used to live on Water Street near the elementary school next to the Neefes house on the curve there.
