Veterans Day Salute: Oscar Ray Barney Jr.



Editor's Note: This story originally appeared on June 6, 2021 in honor of Oscar Ray Barney Jr.'s 99th birthday. We wanted to honor this World War II veteran in our selection of Veterans Day stories and have added a collage photograph of Barney's father, son and grandson who are also veterans.
