Staff Sgt. H. Trout       US AIR FORCE

Mr. Trout was raised in Hominy Falls, W. Virginia where it was common for every male, when they turned of age, went to work in the coal mines.  Mr.Trout was one of the first to break that tradition and joined the Air Force during wartime.  He enlisted on July 16, 1951.  His son Tony says he’s sure his dad had dreams of flying around the world and seeing all of the exotic lands that he could only read about in school, but to his surprise, just out of boot camp he was ordered to the North Pole in ” Operation Deep Freeze”.  there for the next two years he saw nothing but snow.  Luckily, Mr. Trout being from W.V. was use to that type of weather.  He was stationed at Donaldson Center Air Force base here in Greenville, SC .  Greenville is where he met his wife, a fiery redhead beauty that he couldn’t resist.  A year later they were married.  he was discharged from the Air Force just one week after his first son was born.  He came home and change one diaper and he must not have liked it because the very next day he re-enlisted back into the Air Force.  He was stationed at Donaldson Center for the next 4 years.  Mr. Trout was discharged from the Air Force with the rank of Staff Sgt. on July 27, 1959; just one month after his second son was born.  Tony says his mother made his Dad stay home this time and catch up on diaper duty!

PFC C. Shows          US MARINES

Mrs. Shows served in the  US Marines for 14 months, there she met her first husband and got married.  When I told her how awesome I thought it was for her to be a Marine, she smiled and said, “I didn’t think much about it, I just did it! “  The words of a true Veteran!!!!!

We here at Active day of Greer salute our Veteran, Past, Present, and Future!!!!  Thank you for your service to our Country!!!!
