November 11, 2019 is the 100th anniversary of Veteran's Day, honoring all of those who have served our country in war or peace. To our Veterans - THANK YOU for your service.
Arthur Starr of Ypsilanti, left, a World War I veteran, was in the crowd which Monday afternoon greeted Marine Capt. James Warner, Washtenaw County's first freed prisoner of war to return from the Vietnam War. Starr, an active American Legion member who belongs to a "40 and 8" unit, fought in a war almost 50 years before Capt. Warner was shot down and captured. The captain was a guest of honor at a reception at the National Guard Armory on S. Huron St. in Ypsilanti Monday after being taken on a tour of the city. The former POW talked briefly with students at Ypsilanti High School and Eastern Michigan University, both of which he attended.
