We have something fun to do this Thursday in Burnet. Hershel Fowler is a WWII veteran who will turn 92 years young on that day. His son, JT Fowler, reports that Mr. Fowler is in declining health and about a year ago "had his next to last heart attack", as he put it.
JT asked if the PGR could recognize his dad's service on his birthday, so we planned a way for us to say Happy Birthday and Thank You to Mr. Fowler.

We all know the heroes of WWII are rapidly departing the world they saved from tyranny and oppression so many years ago. This is a great opportunity to thank one of them in person.
