Blair County's Fallen Soldiers' History Discussed

Blair County's Fallen Soldiers were honored with a retrospective at the Railroader's Memorial Museum on May 17. James Lowe, chairman of the Board of Directors for Blair County Historical Society, talked about the veterans of Blair County from WWI through the War on Terror, who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country and never had the opportunity to enjoy the coming home celebrations and welcome home that so many other soldiers did.

Lowe said that he has discovered that a lot of these stories are compelling stories that need to be told and so many of them are forgotten over the years.
