Despite a steady rain stemming from the remnants of Hurricane Nicole, a crowd lined the streets in downtown Matewan last Friday, Nov. 11, to watch the town’s 21st Veterans Day Parade. At the conclusion of the parade, the crowd then assembled inside the United Mine Workers of America’s 1440 Union Hall to take part in the accompanying Veterans Day program that followed. Matewan Drama Group Director and active community volunteer Donna Paterino said the parade/program, along with the Veterans Memorial Wall honoring veterans of all wars and eras that was erected on the grounds of Town Hall more than 20 years ago, owe their existence to U. S. Army Veteran and Matewan resident Danny Johnson.
