You probably have heard his name before. His name emerges annually during Cannelton’s Christmas parade and again in the spring for the town’s Easter egg hunt.
In fact, his name can be found each time Cannelton American Legion Post 142 sponsors or participates in any event.
The post has honorably carried his name since his death in World War 1.
His name is Harry G. Myers and he is one of Perry County’s Gold Star Veterans.
