VETERANS DAY 2016

SGT FARRIS L. RICHARDSON

Today we added SGT Farris L. Richardson's name to the Memorial. He served with the 101st ABN Div and was killed on 21 March 1968. We are grateful to Harold Hall, a high school classmate of Farris who brought the omission to our attention. Farris was born, raised and lived in Estill county through his junior year of high school. He completed school in Cincinnati, Ohio and joined the Army there. He was listed as an Ohio casualty and therefore was not in our database. He is buried in Irvine, KY. There are now 1105 names on the Memorial.
