ADAMS COUNTY LIBRARY NEWS

A local World War II veteran was honored during a public Medals Ceremony at the Peebles Library. Congressman Brad Wenstrup presented six medals to the descendants of Master Sergeant Donald Fleming, who served in the United States Army Air Corps during World War II. After his death, his family began to search for information about the medals Fleming was awarded during his four years of active service. Congressman Wenstrup presented the six awards to members of Fleming’s family, including one descendent currently serving in the U.S. military, who attended by video call.
