Last Wednesday, Allen Huddleston of Bedford passed away at the age of 97. Mr. Huddleston was the last living member of the Bedford Boys. I was deeply saddened to hear of Mr. Huddleston’s passing, and our thoughts and prayers remain with his friends and family. We lost a true American hero this week, and we owe a debt of gratitude for his faithful service to our nation.
