We're recognizing the brave men and women who have served our country.

On Nov. 6, we're saluting retired Marine Col. Bob Lukeman.

Lukeman first served in the Korean War with the U.S. Marine Corps and later with the Marine reserves.

After his service, Lukeman created a program called Vetcoin, where he sells a series of U.S. military commemorative coins with proceeds donated for scholarships for children and dependents of those wounded or killed in action.

Now at 91, Lukeman spends his time with his 19 grandchildren and playing golf with fellow veterans.

Thank you, Col. Lukeman, for your continued service.
