Hats off to our community for recognizing women service veterans as marshals for our Veterans Day Parade. I noticed nothing was said about Jimmie Ellis, who served as a chief petty officer in the Navy for 21 years, stationed at many bases from Guam to Sicily. This bright, intelligent, and personable woman drives seniors to out-of-town medical appointments, chairs the Women’s Club Book Talk, and works at the Historical Society.
