Honoring Those Who Serve Event

By Chris Tevis- Email

Dean Smittle, USAF (ret.), military analyst for WLW radio's Jim Scott Show and for Cincinnati's WCPO-TV Morning News, will speak at Custenborder Park at 1 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 2, in conjunction with "Honoring Those Who Serve," a Vietnam War veterans-appreciation event presented by the Shelby County Historical Society.

Area high school students will attend the lecture and the public also is invited. There is no admission charge. Attendees should take their own lawn chairs to sit on.

A disabled veteran, Smittle has just been elected to the Ohio Veterans Hall of Fame. He will speak about dedication to country and the sacrifices made by individuals and families. He will recount stories from World War II, the Korean Conflict, the Vietnam War, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
