The Veterans Day ceremony at the Rochester Veterans Park
becomes more and more of a tradition…
Veterans, elected officials and fellow residents were proud to honor Rochester’s oldest veteran, Herbert Jenkins (red beret, above and below). On November 7, 2013, Herbert ‘Ben’ Jenkins turned 100. As reported in Blue Stone Press (Nov. 1, 2013 issue), he served in the U.S. Navy aboard the U.S. Gulfstream in the Asiatic-Pacific Theater. Happy 100th birthday and thank you for your service, Ben!
