It is always a honor and privilege to feature the men and women who have bravely served, defending our country and our freedoms. Let us never take for granted their great sacrifice, and the sacrifices of those who gave all to keep this great nation free.
This month, we are featuring hometown veteran SSG Robert C. Miles. He and his wife Angela have three children, Hayden, 10, Hudson, 8, and Hogan, 6. The family resides in Greenwood.
