A forgotten Adair Co. war hero: John Samuel Keen, late of Columbia

The United States posthumously awarded Adair Countian EM1c John Samuel Keen the Purple Heart, and his name appears on the Tablets of the Missing at Manila American Cemetery, Manila, Philippines. Though born in Cumberland County, he moved to Adair County as a youth and was a resident of Adair County when he joined the United States Navy.


On this date 75 years ago -- November 13, 1942 -- Adair County resident John Samuel Keen died halfway around the world in a war not of his making.

A native of Cumberland County, young Keen moved to Columbia in 1924 with the rest of his family: his father Travis, stepmom Lyda, sister Lou Sarah, and brothers Joe B. and Arnold. After Travis died in 1926, the others remained in Columbia and were enumerated as residents of High Street when the census taker came calling in the spring of 1930. By the time Lou Sarah died toward the end of July that year, however, John Samuel, then about 21, had joined the Navy.

Veterans Breakfast 2017 a first at the new VFW Post 6097

A First, a history making event with the first ever Veterans Annual Breakfast in the New Post Building made this event a Red Letter Day one - but thanks to some behind the scenes negotiations at a very high level, the Post's Monument is in Place - weeks earlier than had been expected, when on Thursday, November 9, 2017, it was quietly and safely secured in place.

By Linda & Ed Waggener

The annual Walmart Supercenter/United Citizens Bank Veterans Day breakfast held Saturday, November 11, 2017 was inside the newly finished VFW building at 500 Green Hills Road, Columbia, KY, and there was a surprise: The Post's Monument had been rebuilt and was in its place, ready to add to the feeling that the Veterans were at home.

A huge country breakfast was served up by Walmart associates, the co-hosts with United Citizens Bank, and then there was a brief ceremony.

It was a very emotional meeting with only one WWII Veteran able to be in attendance, and ths was the first time for this event to be held in the new VFW building at its new location.

Remembering Philip Glenn Cravens (1947-2016) on his birthday

Today would have been Phil Cravens' 70th birthday. He's been in heaven for nine months now. He was a decorated Army ranger who fought in Vietnam, and who shared experiences from the war with the writer, who remembers the story of the beautiful blonde, Annie Fannie, painted on the front of the helicopters which would take war-weary soldiers away from the front. Phil named one of his dogs for Annie Fannie. She is a 14 year old long haired dachshund and 45 pounds of pure joy, who picks tomatoes out of the garden and enjoys slices of sweet all American watermelon . . .

Adair County's Forgotten Service Men: Missing from Monument

With the shattering of the tablet on the VFW War Memorial tablet, JIM sees the opportunity to right the wrongs to the Bailey, Collins, Harvey, Hurt, Keen, Garrett, Robertson, Shaw, and Wilmore families whose members made the supreme sacrifice but were not included in the original list of names.
Click on headline for the complete editorial

Guest editorial

In the spring of 1948, seven months after the installation of the War Memorial, the Adair County News noted the "The list of names on the V.F.W Memorial Marker. . .is not complete and a stone worker will be here within a month to finish the job."

The article also noted that "The V.F.W. wants names of all who lost their lives during the war correctly inscribed on the monument" with the stated objective (the added emphasis is mine) "to secure a complete and correct list for the Memorial, which is a permanent record of Adair's war dead."

Memorial Day tribute to Staff Sergeant Edwin Morris Harmon (1920-1943

I wrote this a few years ago about my uncle who was killed in World War ll. I would like to share it today . . . Even though I never got to meet my Uncle Edwin, he will forever be a hero to me. - LEE ANN WILLIS
Click on headline for complete tribute

By Lee Ann Willis

World War ll took the lives of many devoted American citizens, some of whom were young men who bravely fought for our country.

My uncle, Edwin Morris Harmon, was one of these young men. Although he died years before I was born, I recently got to know him.

I had always known that my mother's brother had died in the war after his plane was shot down somewhere over France. There was a picture of him hanging on the wall in our home.
