The Journal wishes to apologize to you, our readers, for getting a couple of things wrong in a recent article. We thank many of you for catching our error. And we would like to say a special “I’m sorry” to Corey, Joy, Jon and their friends.
We congratulate the young man shown with this article. Cory Maxwell, Jr. is his name and he recently graduated Marine Corps Basic Training at Parris Island. His brother Jon Russell and mother Joy Russell are very proud. So are other family members and friends.
We can all sleep comfortably this night knowing that Cory and many other young men and women from our area are keeping watch. Thank you for your service.
