A member of the Middletown VFW honor guard hands a folded flag to Lula Stump Maddox, the lone surviving daughter of WWI Veteran Dave Stump during a ceremony to honor Stump’s WWI service on Saturday.
WWI veteran honored after 50 years

 

A brisk wind kept the American flag unfurled as it was posted over the tombstone of Dave Stump at Valley Cemetery Saturday afternoon. Standing nearby was a military honor guard, and seated were Stump’s lone surviving daughter, and other family members and friends of the man who died in a house fire more than 50 years ago. All came to bestow an honor that was long overdue.
