This week we honor a Holdrege native, Army Specialist Barbara A. (Raile) Whitehead.
Barbara served in the U.S. Army from 1990 to 1993 at Fort Benning, Georgia as a 94 Bravo in Food Service. After her time in the Army she found her way back to her home state and once again lives in Holdrege.
Barbara was nominated by her son Ridge Roberts. He said he plans to follow in his mother's footsteps and join the military.
