[Click on photos below to enlarge.]

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.
