Honoring the fallen

Published 8:05 pm Friday, June 2, 2017

Judge Dennis Powell is the key speaker at the 14th Annual Tribute to Orange County Veterans on Sunday at the Heritage Veterans Memorial Plaza located at 3810 M.L. King Drive in Orange. Powell spoke on how some families are reminded daily of those who have fallen because it is their family member such as Deborah Crosby’s father. Lt. Commander Frederick Crosby was a U.S. Navy pilot when he was shot down over North Vietnam on June 1, 1965. After 52 years, he returned home this weekend to full military honors and was laid to rest.
