Remembering a fallen warrior: Native soldier shares importance of honoring veterans past and present


PALESTINE — Capt. Dale Waldon, a native of Palestine,  currently serves in the United States Army at an undisclosed location in Southwest Asia. He is a 1994 graduate of PHS who holds a B.S. from Tarleton State University and M.A. from The George Washington University. CPT Waldon is married to former Julie Williams, an accomplished scholar, mom and also a 1994 graduate of PHS. Julie currently resides in Palestine with their children, where she teaches undergraduate studies at the university level and patiently awaits his return. CPT Waldon attributes Julie’s expertise of the written language (as well as her much needed editorial oversight) as the inspirational drive that encourages his love of writing.
