 World War II Veterans from Morgan County were honored in a recent Eagle Scout project completed by Trevor Slate of Milton.  Slate raised money to place markers on the graves of Norris Andrew Nelson, Sgt. Henry Burton Nelson, P.F.C. Thomas Henry Giles, Sgt. Chester R. Olsen, Seaman 2nd Class Karl Crittenden, P.F.C. Frank Jay Lacey and First Lieut. Craig Hannum.  He found it interesting that small farming communities like Milton, Richville, Porterville, Morgan City, Peterson and Mountain Green all lost so many of their sons and daughters, creating hardship on families, neighbors and the entire community.  Many veterans returned wounded and shell-shocked carrying unimaginable, horrible images for the remainder of their lives.
