Dinner honors veterans



Drake pulled on his experience helping veterans to discuss improvements to services available and continued needs.

After his remarks concluded, a reminder was issued of Monday’s Veterans Day Parade, scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. in downtown Glasgow and the subsequent program at the Glasgow-Barren County Veterans’ Wall, for which Drake has a different speech planned, and an open house at the South Central Kentucky Cultural Center.

The dinner and parade are sponsored by the Barren County Veterans’ Association.

A few individuals lingered for some final chatting, including Donald and Pat Likes of Austin. The Anderson County natives moved to Barren County, where they’d been coming for years to visit friends, Pat Likes said. The move came after they retired, but before that, Donald Likes had served with Drake in Frankfort. In the 63rd Aviation Brigade, he said.

“He was a helicopter pilot and I was a crew member,” Likes said, adding that he appreciated the dinner and the chance to see “old friends.”

“Most of the veterans are from different areas,” he said, “and things like this bring us back together.”
