Grows give presentation to Fort GreeneVille DAR

The Shelby County Vets to DC Committee has just completed its eleventh trip to DC. A total of 110 persons, WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam/Vietnam-Era Veterans, made this trip in September to see their memorials. Fort GreeneVille Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution gave a donation that went towards sponsoring three Darke County Veterans. The local veterans that participated were John Berger, Korean War Veteran, from Versailles; Richard Grow, Jr., Vietnam Veteran, from Ansonia; and former Darke Countian George Monnier, WWII Veteran.

Fort GreeneVille DAR was honored to have Vietnam Veteran Richard Grow and his wife Kate share their D.C. trip experience at the chapter’s November meeting. Richard and Kate presented a video highlighting the D.C. trip.
