As we pay tribute to all Veterans on this upcoming Memorial Day let's not forget we are loosing veteran's at a fast pace. This is a baker's dozen of World War II veterans gathered at Robert's Meat Market last November to celebrate the 98th birthday of Bridge City's Cedric Stout, a sailor in the U.S. Navy who survived the Japanese Attack on the Pear Harbor Naval Base on Dec. 7, 1941. From left, they are Millard Cox, Burdette Oldbury, J.D. Dixson, Lennie Benoit, Ruby Parks, John Pittman, Cedric Stout, J.B. Arrington, Tom Brooks, Ray Fontenot, Eugene Goudeau, Robert Rothrock, Athanase "Junior" Benoit. We just lost Tom Brooks this month.
