Thank you so very much for recognizing my great uncle, Darrell C. West.
He was killed in action in Vietnam in 1969 and lived in West Virginia in Calhoun County.
My Grandmother(his sister) would be as proud as the rest of our family is to see that Darrell (known by family and
friends as Joe) has been recognized and honored by the Hur Herald. I know my mother's wish was to see him honored as the
Calhounian that he was, growing up in the Mudfork area of the West Fork.
