Fair military exhibit much appreciated
Placeholder Image
To the editor:I feel sure the people who saw the military exhibit at the Alexandria Fairgrounds appreciated it as much as I did. Thanks to Ria Baker, Pat Parkerson and to all who were involved with the exhibit, the photographs and other related material, my uncle Austin Inglis, my cousin John R. Craddock and my husband’s brother – Fred Dosson House – who submitted late but was still incorporated into the exhibit.The first photograph I noticed entering the building was my cousin Hub Buterbaugh, then I saw photos of many other family members including my cousin John R. Craddock whose mother, Ona (Inglis) Craddock, refused to believe he did not survive a plane crash until her dying day.When I was a child, my mother took me to Nashville’s Armistice Day Parade each year. I cherish that memory and have the deepest gratitude for those who returned from the war and those who did not.My mother-in-law, Mrs. C.D. (Lillian) House was a Gold Star Mother as was Mrs. Oscar Davis of Liberty and many others in DeKalb County.
