Boone Co. Library to Honor Vets Throughout November
Throughout the month of November, Boone County Public Library invites customers to stop by the Scheben Branch and hang a paper star to honor those who have served or are serving in the armed services.
While at the Scheben Branch, in partnership with the City of Union’s Adopt-a-Troop program, customers can sign a Christmas card for service members in the 101st airborne unit based at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky. They can also learn more about the Adopt-a-Troop program which has supported this unit, nicknamed “The Havoc,” through two deployments and two training missions.
Veterans can stop by the Scheben Branch on Saturday, November 14 from 1 to 5 p.m. to meet with Cincinnati VA medical staff on the VA Mobile Health Unit. Individuals will be on hand to answer questions about benefits for veterans and their dependents.
There will be a display at the Scheben Branch all month to honor the crew of the WWII bomber, Hunconcious. The aircraft and crew went missing after a mission on December 23, 1944. The plane and the bodies of the crew were found in 2012. One of the members of the crew was Staff Sergeant Ward Swalwell Jr. and his sister is a resident of Boone County.
