Honoring a local Vet

U.S. Air Force Second Lt. Sean Cothran recently flew to the area in an Air Force T-6 Texan II airplane and presented his grandfather, Hollis Cothran of Armuchee, with the U.S. National Defense Service Medal. Hollis served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War but was unaware that he had earned the medal. Standing with them is Sean's father and Hollis' son, Barry Cothran, a Rome native, Armuchee High School graduate and former USAF officer. Lt. Cothran is a pilot stationed at Columbus Air Force Base in Mississippi.
