World War II veteran Ed Youngblood of Union City is recovering from a broken hip in room 305 at Union City Manor.
A survivor of the Battle of Iwo Jima, Youngblood was the guiding force behind two monuments erected on the lawn of the Obion County Courthouse — one commemorates the flag-raising on Iwo Jima and the other the Medal of Honor awardees. “I’m getting better,” he told The Messenger this morning. “It’s just going to take a while.”
