CARMEL, Ind. (Nov. 11, 2014)-- The retirement community in Carmel invited special guests to hear the story behind Indiana's war memorials as Hoosiers around the state commemorated Veterans Day.
Retired Brig. Gen. J. Stewart Goodwin was on hand to share his military experiences with guests at the Barrington, encouraging everyone to consider the sacrifices made by other veterans and to promote the Indiana War Memorial.
Richard Clement, a retiree in the community who served during World War II, told FOX59 about his experience while serving his country.
"I look back on it it with ease and good memories. I have nothing to be afraid of, and I feel I am one of the very fortunate ones," said Clement.
The Barrington is donating to the "Bricks of Remembrance," a project to have a brick in each resident veteran's name placed around the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in Indianapolis.
