Over 300 attend Veterans Memorial Dedication

Anne Kubr wiped a tear from her eyes as the Pawnee County Veterans Memorial Dedication drew to a close Sunday afternoon in Pawnee City. “It was beautiful and it so honored every veteran that is here. The depth 
of feeling that each speaker gave - it was an honor to be here,” she said. Kubr is from Roca and she has the names of three family members on the wall: granddad Al Porr, who was a postmaster in Pawnee City,
served in World War I; her dad, William Reiter of World War II; and nephew Ryan Guthrie who is serving in Iraq.
