Doug Fredericks: Another Purple Heart Ceremony View

That's Councilman Ron Edinger, Councilman Mike Kennedy and Kerri Thoreson across the back. Is that Will Kennedy in the foreground?

Mike Kennedy: Indeed 'tis 10 year-old Webelo Scout Will Kennedy in that shot. He had just finished leading the Pledge of Allegiance and I was bursting buttons with pride. Kerri and the County Commissioners put on a very touching event that was a credit to our veterans and purple heart winners. They really have done a nice job at honoring Kootenai County's veterans at the courthouse. It's a fine place to gather. Will is inspired to take on a research project and find out information on his grandfather Bill Morrow's Silver Star award in Vietnam in hopes of adding him to the "Wall of Heroes" inside the courthouse. Met Doug Fredericks for the first time, too, in another Huckleberries connection. Nice guy, good photog, looking forward to seeing his work in lights some day.

DFO: I see Will's blessed with his mother's looks.
