Locally, we feel the impact of the war, but no one feels the pains more then the family members watching the events unfold on television. One of the nation's most decorated veterans, Corporal Ron Rosser, has a granddaughter currently fighting overseas...fighting for freedom just as Rosser did years ago, to be awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor. 22-year-old Amy Peidras is with the 101st Aviation Division. She flies rescue helicopters to save injured soldiers. After the recent news of the shooting in the 101st division, Rosser expressed concern for his granddaughter's safety. He is quick to add that he is confident in her abilities. The Rosser's also have a nephew in the militray...22-year-old Matthew Smth from Crooksville is currently waiting for orders.
