Members of the VFW Honor Guard and local Veterans joined with many friends of the late Ssgt. Joseph Fankhauser, on Veteran’s Day, to commemorate the setting of a memorial stone in his memory at the Mason County Library. Ssgt. Fankhauser was killed earlier this year in Helmand Province, Afghanistan. He was a member of the MHS class of 2000, an Eagle Scout, joining the Marine Corp right after graduation. He served three tours in Iraq, and was serving his 2nd tour in Afghanistan, as an expolosive ordinance technician, when he was killed. His service and ultimate sacrifice will forever be remembered, “deep in the heart of Texas.”
