Recently, members of American Legion Post 58 installed six brick pavers at the Veterans Memorial at Honor Park in Guthrie. The pavers recognize the service of veterans who have served in uniform to protect us and the values of our country.
KarAn Privette was there to observe the brick paver placement for her father, J.M. Hartgrave. F1 Hartgrave served in WWII in the Navy.
Supervising the installation of a paver carrying his own name was George Privette, who served in the National Guard and talked about his basic and Advanced Individual Training (AIT) at Ft. Bragg, NC. as well as his various activations afterwards.
Jerry Branke, Vice Chair of the Post, noted, “The pavers are a wonderful way to recognize and appreciate women and men who have served in the U.S. military. They don’t have to be from or living in Logan County. The paver cost $40 and is a grand opportunity to honor all veterans.”
For more information about the pavers, contact the American Legion Post 58 at (405) 282-2589 or email Steve Gentling: Sgentling@cox.net.
