Honoring Those Who Served

Postmaster Brenda Warnke honored five local Fairfax veterans by giving each a Korean War Medal of Honor stamp sheet.

The Postal Service is proud to honor our veterans, both living and deceased, and their families by issuing the Korean War Medal of Honor Forever stamp prestige folio.

Last week, Fairfax Postmaster Brenda Warnke extended Stamp Folios of the Korean War Medal of Honor Forever Stamps to Korean War Veterans Gerald Pepper, Navy; Don Bentz, Army; Billy Weidner, Army (served in both WWII and Korea); and Eldon Nolan, Marines. Other honorees included Glenn Baker and Terry Liewer.

“My father, Douglas Deffenbaugh, also served in the Korean War,” said Warnke, ”so I wanted to do something to honor his memory and the Fairfax veterans of this era to thank them for their sacrifices.”

In addition to the stamp sheets purchased by Warnke, the local veterans were also treated to cookies and juice at the Post Office.
