ELWOOD — Hundreds of people from all walks of life gathered to honor the life of George Green, a Korean War veteran who died Dec. 5 with no known living relatives.
Veterans from as far away as Michigan, high school students and ordinary residents joined together Thursday to attend the funeral services for Green, 89, who was awarded the Bronze Star medal four times for his service in the U.S. Army.

An Indiana National Guard soldier died Saturday at the Muscatatuck Urban Training Center, located about 75 miles southeast of Indianapolis.
Cpl. Larry Litton Jr., of Martinsville, was 30 years old and an assistant squad leader with the 384th Military Police Company when he was found unresponsive at the facility.
On Saturday, what John Williams thought was going to be an easy afternoon manning a booth at a local gun show in Evansville, Indiana, turned into something much more unpleasant. The retired Army sergeant first class was kicked out of a gun show on Feb. 4 because of his service dog.
