Sheridan Senior Center Wall of Honor displays Sheridan veterans

(Sheridan, Wyo.) — Fred Araas — everyone calls him Doc — moved to Sheridan for the mountains and community in the 1950s, but before that, he served in the U.S. Army during World War II. Araas, 95, served as Chief Clerk, Det. I-343, Co. A, 3rd Military Govt. Regiment. During the advance into Germany, Araas was attached to the 3rd Army, 1st Army and 4th Armored Division elements. He came home with the 79th Infantry Division, and served in the United States for 20 months prior to 20 months of service in Europe. While in Europe, Araas was located in Northern France, Ardennes, Rhineland, Central Europe, and occupied Miltenberg, Germany. Fred Araas is just one of many veterans honored today on the Sheridan Senior Center's Wall of Honor. The Wall of Honor will be up until Nov. 22. "If it wasn't for them, we could be speaking German right now," son Fred Araas III, himself a veteran who conducted security during 9/11, said.
