Meet Your County Honor Corps

Rick Wooddell
Honor Corps Commander

In the coming weeks we hope to bring you a short highlight of each of the men and women who make up the Pocahontas County Honor Corps.

There are currently 23 veterans serving in the Corps – many of whom have served for decades longer than their time on active duty in the military.

This is but a glimpse of those who are committed to ensuring that their fallen comrades, of all branches of the U.S. military, are rendered the proper military courtesies as they make their final journey.
