Among the many people enjoying lunch inside the Legion on Monday were Bill and Jean Gossett. Gossett is a veteran of foreign war, but on Monday his true focus was on two young men who sat at the table with them.

Taylor Hibbard and his friend Shane Benedict were special guests of the Gossetts. Bill Gossett explained that young Taylor had heard he was a veteran and had brought a dollar and put in the balloon launch so Gossett's name could go up in the air with all the hundreds of others.

Gossett said it was such a special thing that he wanted Taylor to come and join in the day, along with his best buddy, Shane Benedict.
