FULTON – Each fall, the Veterans’ Council of Fulton chooses a Veteran of the Year.
This year we honor Bob LaRock, a Korean War veteran, for his dedication and service to our country.
As a Marine, LaRock was bestowed with many medals for his service including the National Defense Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, and Good Conduct Medal.
As the 2018 Veteran of the Year, LaRock will be the grand marshal of the Memorial Day Salute Parade.
The parade and event is proudly supported by the Fulton Kiwanis, Lions, Noon Rotary, and Sunrise Rotary service clubs and the Veterans’ Council.
The Memorial Day Salute Committee invites the community to join us in honoring LaRock at the 37th Memorial Day Salute event on May 26.
