WIS Salutes USMC Gunnery Sergeant Harry H. Griffin Jr.

NEWBERRY COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

WIS is proud to salute Harry H. Griffin Jr. of Pomaria. Griffin was recently promoted to Gunnery Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps. He has proudly served our country for 14 years. 

His sister, Jennifer, says he joined the military after 9/11 so that he could do his part to protect our country and our children. 

Every time he’s deployed he's had to leave behind a son who only gets to see his dad about three months out of the year. Jennifer says her baby brother
is her hero because of the sacrifices he makes everyday.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
