Hometown Heroes

Finishing Up Their Roles Remembered

Being our local historical quarterly's editor gives me wonderful opportunities to meet incredible people.  I've grown up with or around many people who rarely make headlines because they're busy living a good life as farmers or community advocates in our little farm town.  

But one of our World War 2 veterans was interviewed last week during a regional spotlight on our town and it would touch anyone.  These fellows were diligent in sharing the local veterans' stories and Farmer City has a treasure in Their Roles Remembered.

One of the authors, John Dawson, gave a couple of our local homeschooling families a living history lesson sharing his experiences and answering our questions about his World War 2 experiences.  We've found those stories and museums are the most engaging and best way to learn history and our culture, even while it means tramping through various cemeteries.
