College Place event to honor veterans Sunday morning


COLLEGE PLACE — An event to honor veterans will be held at 11 a.m. on Sunday at Country Estates Mobile Home Park recreation hall, 938 Scenic View Dr.

Local U.S. Marine Corps veteran Federico Diaz will be the guest of honor, said Marge Nyhagen, one of the organizers.

During the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, Diaz gained national attention when a picture of him with a bloodied face ran on the cover of Time magazine. He has since been discharged and has returned to Walla Walla.
