RAPID RIVER - Two military servicemen, Clarence Frazer, who was killed in action during World War II, and John Doyen Dault, a veteran of the Korean War, will be honored during a Veteran of the Month ceremony Tuesday at the Walter W. Cole American Legion Post 301 of Rapid River.

Patterned after a national program established by the American Legion, a new Veteran of the Month is honored each month in a formal service at the Legion. The program will begin at 7:15 p.m.

Nominations are being sought for the Veteran of the Month program sponsored by Rapid River Legion Post 301. Program chairman, Dan Duncan, is seeking names for future honorees.

The program is open to all deceased honorably discharged veterans and those who died while serving in the Armed Forces of the United States, and those who remain Missing In Action. There are no specific service dates for honoree eligibility. It is not mandatory that the honoree be a former resident of the community where the service are conducted. Out of town veterans are welcome.

For more information about the program or to nominate a deceased veteran, call Duncan at 233-9587.
