Joel Miller honors:
Allen D. Miller was drafted and served mainly in Germany. I remember the draft had ended or was about to end, and I was worried he would be sent to Vietnam. I don't recall Allen ever complaining about being drafted. He reported for duty, completed his training, and went overseas. He made the best of it like so many before him. And received little recognition like many other Vietnam era veterans. As Flag Day 2014 approaches, I say to you, "Thanks for serving Allen! Welcome home!"
