Some of them might sacrifice their lives; some might experience lifetime injuries; and some might suffer mental scars. Thirty years ago, while working at a prison south of Hagerstown, I met a correctional officer named Jack E. Padgett. Jack was a tall, lanky and likeable fellow from South Carolina.

Stewart Hickey, 53, will spend two weeks with retiring Executive Director Jim King. His responsibilities include working with the elected national commander, overseeing top administrators, testifying in Congress and increasing awareness of the veterans service organization. “I was in the Marine Corps for 22 years, and I never heard of AMVETS.
