A yearly banquet for the Livingston County Veterans’ Council will honor this year’s Veteran and Auxiliary of the Year representatives.

The council gathered recently at the American Legion Post 141 in Howell and named Charlie Brock as the 2018 Veteran of the Year and June Holley as 2018 Auxiliary of the Year. Brock is the Senior Vice Commander for the Michigan Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and treasurer of the DAV’s Chapter 125. He served in the United States Marine Corps from 1975 to 1981 and is now a Certified Claims Officer, helping veterans and their families with claims and benefits.

Holley is eligible through the service of her late husband Earl, who served in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. She has been an active member of the American Legion Ladies Auxiliary unit 141 for 62 years, serving as President, Vice President, Secretary, Historian, Chaplain and Sgt. at Arms. The American Legion Ladies’ Auxiliary is a service organization that advocates for veterans and patriotism, while providing support to military members and their families.

They will both be officially honored at the council’s annual banquet, Saturday, April 21st in Howell. (JK)
