Let us pause and salute all who have served this Veterans Day

On Behalf of | Nov 9, 2022 | Firm News

Let us pause and salute all who have served this Veterans Day. The Landrum & Shouse family would like to honor the sacrifices made by members of the United States Armed Forces and their families. The firm’s founding members were Veterans, and Landrum and Shouse remains rich with military heritage today. Charles Landrum, Jr. served 4 years in the U.S. Army during WWII. Weldon Shouse volunteered in the United States Army and served in the United States, North Africa and Italy during WWII. He was released from active service in 1946 as a Captain in the Corps of Military Police. He retired as a Lieutenant Colonel in the Army Reserve. The founding partners practiced law together after their service, and eventually established what is known today as Landrum and Shouse LLP.

We would like to give special thanks to our Veterans at Landrum & Shouse.
