Heartfelt gratitude and appreciation is in order and goes out to Laurel County Judge-Executive Lawrence Kuhl for masterminding and bringing to fruition the veteran's monument which stands on the courthouse lawn. Thank you, Mr. Kuhl, for remembering our veterans in such a significant manner. And, many thanks to everyone who made the dedication of the monument an unforgettable experience.
When I saw the names of my husband, Billy Dean Humfleet (Army); my daughter, Sandra Kaye Humfleet (Air Force); my father-in-law, William Archie Humfleet, now deceased, (Army) and my brother-in-law, Archie Wayne Humfleet (Navy) etched on those granite tablets, I was so overcome with pride and gratefulness to them for their service to my country that I naturally burst into tears. I also appreciate and will forever be grateful to all whose names appear alongside theirs’ for all services which they have rendered to this great country.
This memorial is a lasting honor to our veterans, without whom this country would not even exist as we know it today. So, thank you once again, Mr. Kuhl, for apparently recognizing this fact and taking the time and effort to do something about it in such a grand way.
