Community appreciates and honors veteran

Command Sgt. Major Henry Armstrong turned 96 this month. His friends in Cincinnati, Ohio, honored him with a parade. Neighbors and first responders drove by his house to wish him a happy birthday. He said it meant a lot to him. 

Armstrong served in the U.S. Army for 41 years, from 1943 to 1984. He served in Europe during WWII and his greatest memory is helping to liberate Gunskirchen Lager, a concentration camp in Austria. In the past few years, he's met three of the men he helped to liberate. Later, he served in the Korean War and Vietnam War before retiring.
