Whiteman wreath ceremony was fitting tribute

May 27, 2014

Dear Editor:

Our Sedalia Area Chamber of Commerce Public Affairs Committee Director David Rouchka did it right again this year. The 26th annual 2nd Lt. George A. Whiteman wreath laying ceremony. at his grave was a genuine tribute to all who have fought and died in the line of duty.

As U.S. Rep. Vicky Hartzler (R.Mo.) stated in her speech to those attending, “a true American hero who died in defense of his country.” Wow! What more could be said. David Rouchka keep up the good work. Hope to see you again as coordinator of next year’s event.
