Re­mem­ber­ing those who served

Starkville Daily News - - FORUM -

I en­joyed the cov­er­age by The Starkville Daily News, about the hon­or­ing of our Ok­tibbeha County peo­ple, who served our country in the mil­i­tary.

We need to al­ways re­mem­ber them, and their fam­i­lies, be­cause, they gave so much.

The old obit­u­ary, in the link be­low, is not an Ok­tibbeha County per­son, but is a per­son, whose fam­ily was in­volved with peo­ple in Starkville, and many other places.

This young Ma­rine, from Quit­man, Mis­sis­sippi, was killed in Iraq, in 2007.

After he was killed, his fam­ily adopted the K9 dog, Lex, who was in­jured in the same ex­plo­sion, in which Dustin was killed

His fam­ily, and Lex, vis­ited many nurs­ing homes, and vet­er­ans' homes with pro­grams.

His par­ents, and grand­par­ents, and Lex, vis­ited The Starkville First Bap­tist Church, a few years ago, pre­sent­ing a pro­gram.

I think the peo­ple of Ok­tibbeha County re­mem­ber all our vet­er­ans, all the year.
