Veteran's Day Rememberance
Hugh Carpenter Bedient was inducted into the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame in 1983 based on his outstanding baseball career as a pitcher, which included winning the 1912 World Series championship with the Boston Red Sox. However, this month’s newsletter focuses not on him, but rather his son, Palmer, who died tragically in 1940 while serving his country.
On Veteran’s Day, November 11th, as we give thanks to all who have answered the call of our nation, let us particularly remember Hugh Palmer Bedient . You can read his story in the November newsletter.
