Veterans recognized at Clermont County Fair

The salute to veterans at the Clermont County Fair Thursday night included a unique event. More than 40 military recruits from Clermont County took their oath of service as administered by state Representative and Ret. Marine Colonel Danny Bubp.

“There have been 55 American men and women killed in Afghanistan and Iraq this month, including Spc. Dohrenwend and Spc. Bauer,” Bubp said. “I think the impact of the decision these young people have made needs to be highlighted.”

Bubp commended the recruits’ dedication to Clermont County and to the United States.
