    Howard County is long known for its patriotism and support of the military. In fact, the county has the highest percentage of veterans of any county in the entire state of Indiana. Because of that, the Kokomo metro area is known as a veteran-friendly area – complete with a full-time Howard County Veterans Service Office and the largest annual Vietnam veterans gathering in the nation.

It means that winter is knocking on our door.” One of the others in our group moaned, “I know what you mean, we have at least four months of cold weather and snow ahead of us.” They each then looked at me and cynically stated, “We know, you love this time of year. You aren’t right.”
