BRADFORD NATIONAL BANK AND GHS PUBLISH BOOK ABOUT WWII VETERANS
Bradford National Bank, in cooperation with Greenville High School students, has published a book about World War II Veterans titled The Greatest Generation, Stories of Greenville’s World War Two Veterans. We spoke with Randy Alderman of Bradford National Bank who said several years ago, Bradford National Bank was approached about putting together a book about area World War II veterans. They worked with the school at that time to try to get something together, however it never quite worked out. This year they tried again and with the help of teachers Jennifer Dannaman and Juli Kastl from Greenville High School, the book was completed. Mrs. Dannaman and Mrs. Kastl organized students to interview WWII Veterans about their real-life experiences. These experiences collected to make the book. The book is available at both Greenville Bradford National Bank locations for $20.00. Free copies of the book were given to all veterans at the GHS Veterans Day Ceremony, to all the students, and all the schools.
