WAYNESVILLE, Mo. – State Representative David Day (R-Dixon) presented medals from the State of Missouri to five local veterans in recognition of their contributions to the nation. During a private ceremony held at Waynesville City Hall on Nov. 21st, Rep. Day thanked each of the veterans as he presented them with various medals on behalf of the State along with one of the Representative’s coins.

“As Chairman of the House Veteran’s Committee, I work with veteran’s issues on a regular basis and I can tell you, I never cease to be amazed by the dedication and willingness to serve by our nation’s veterans. There is no way we as citizens can ever thank our nation’s heroes enough, but we should stop trying to. These medals are a small token of our appreciation for all that you have done for our nation, we are a grateful nation to you and all others that have served with honor as you have” Said Day.

Those honored were: Wilma Tucker for her service in WWII, Maurice J. Wolfert for his service in the Korean and Vietnam Wars, James Brill (posthumously) for his service in the Korean and Vietnam Wars, Gordon L. Scott for his service in the Korean and Vietnam Wars, and Marge Scott for her service during the Vietnam War.

“I know our communities join me in saying thank you to these wonderful Americans. These men and women are examples of what has made our nation the great one it is. As has been said many times, freedom is not free, and these veterans were willing to sacrifice everything to protect the freedoms of the rest of us. God Bless all of our nation’s veterans” concluded Day.
