Local veteran Walter Rowold was the featured veteran in the July issue of the VFW Auxiliary Magazine.
The magazine is published four times per year and is distributed to 480,000 people in the United States. In each issue they feature a veteran in the “My Veteran” column.
Rowold, who turned 100 last October, was nominated for this special recognition by Red Bud VFW Auxiliary President Kathryn Rowold. (Her husband Clyde is Walter’s nephew.)
In the column, it notes that even at over 100, Rowold continues to be active in honoring fellow veterans.
