July 4, 2012

Family members raised a flag in honor of longtime Blackfoot resident and World War II veteran Worth B McNeel at a ceremony outside Ridley's grocery store in Blackfoot on Wednesday.
McNeel was born on Feb. 19, 1921. When World War II broke out in 1941 he was attending school at Utah State Agricultural College (now Utah State University). He joined the Enlisted Reserve Corps and was called to active duty in April of 1943 where he reported to Fort Douglas, Utah.
