J.P. White, an
Army private first class, formerly of Mount Pulaski, was
killed in Afghanistan in 2006. His parents, Jim and
Robin White of Chambersburg Road, Ohio, have had his
Dodge painted in a U.S. flag design, with JP's picture
on the hood and a list of Ohio fallen posted around the
car. He was a member of the 1st Battalion, 32nd Infantry
Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team of the 10th Mountain
Division, based at Fort Drum, N.Y. J.P. attended Mount
Pulaski Zion Lutheran School before moving to Ohio. His
parents have been making the four-hour trip to Mount
Pulaski Fall Festival the past several years for the
Saturday parade in J.P.'s honor. Two pictures of the car
are in this album.
