Happy birthday and thank you for your service

Charles Frank Mounger, a World War II Marine veteran who witnessed the raising of the flag on Mt. Suribachi on Iwo Jima, celebrated his 98th birthday Nov. 2. When asked about raising of the flag, he said, “I sure was glad to see Old Glory go up.” A special thank you to the Anderson County Sheriff’s Office, Clinton Fire Department, and all the others who drove by to wish Mounger a happy birthday and thank him for his service to our country.
