Editorial Salute - 10/15/09

The Chatham County Veterans Council bestows its annual highest honor.  Savannah attorney Doug Andrews has been named the Council's 2009 Veteran of the Year.  Doug has been active in veteran's affairs for many year, devoting much of his time, energy and expertise, more recently, to Savannah's WW II Memorial project and to obtaining a special bus for transporting our great Second World War veterans to and from area parades and events.  Our heartfelt congratulations, along with all those who've so proudly served, to Veteran of the Year, Doug Andrews, and our sincere thanks for his years of distinguished professional and civic service, and for the depth of commitment he's amply displayed toward caring for, and most of all, remembering, our incredibly, freedom-preserving veterans.
