We are honoring the men and women who served our country.

On June 25, we want to salute Coast Guard veteran O.D. Wingard.

He served from 1941 to 1946 as a radio operator during World War II.

Since the war, he traded a life on the sea for something a little calmer.

Now, he spends his time bowling and working in the garden.

Thank you, O.D., for your service.
