William Gilmore – 81 – USA – Cold War
Charles Rhodes – 82 – USA – Vietnam

The Honor Corps will also recognize a Veteran who not only gave part of his life to the service of his county, but he also gave countless years in his duties to the Honor Corps in performing Final Military Rites for the Fallen Veterans in this county. He will receive two tolls of the bell for his faithful service above and beyond the Call of Duty.

Jerry Taylor – 83 – USAF – Korea
