Legion honors wounded Westerlo vet

Marine Cpl. Luke McDermott of Westerlo greeted several hundred friends, well wishers and even perfect strangers at the Greenville American Legion post No. 291 Sunday to thank everyone for all the support they showed to his family after he lost both legs when a Humvee he was riding in hit a roadside bomb in Afghanistan. One man told McDermott that he drove more two hours just to shake his hand and thank him. The Greenville American Legion Post 291 honored Luke with a lifetime membership.
