United States Army Air Corps veteran E. Coffman Walton, 93 years old, reminisces with Navy veteran Dave Denton about his time in the South Pacific. He recalls when they dropped the A-bomb. “I thank Truman for saving my life,” he said. “A lot of people lost their lives, but he saved mine.” Seventeen Cumberland veterans were served breakfast by the Cumberland Ruritan Club on Veteran’s Day. More photos of the event will be available in next Friday’s Weekender section. (Photo by Ilsa Loeser)
