Sitting on the front row of Dawson County Middle School's auditorium, surrounded by family and friends, Charles Spain listened to stories of military men recalling their service during Dawsonville's annual Veterans Day ceremony last week. Following presentations on World War I, World War II and the Korean conflict, the time had come to recognize Vietnam veterans. A volunteer with the Veterans Affairs of Dawson County, which organizes the ceremony and parade, Spain had no idea his fellow committee members had voted to name him Veteran of the Year for his contributions to the organization and community.
