92-year-old honored by banner


Hillsboro resident Ken Murphy took this photo of his cousin, George Gilmore, on Friday evening standing beneath an “Honoring Those Who’ve Served” banner in uptown Hillsboro. “It was a proud moment for him to see this. He knew nothing about this until I took him to see it,” Murphy said in an email. “He is a veteran of World War II and served under General Patton in the Third Army. He took part in the crossing of the Rhine. George recently turned 92 years old and we are extremely happy that he was still around to see his banner displayed.” Several local groups have been erecting 130 similar banners in the uptown Hillsboro area as part of a project initiated by local resident Alex Butler.
