Hometown Hero Day celebrated in Bealeton

Southern Fauquier businesses and organizations honored military veterans with the fourth “Hometown Hero Day” celebration Saturday in Bealeton.

The ceremony paid special tribute to the late Harold J. Davis of Remington, who served in the U.S. Army during World War II.

Tech Sgt. Davis earned the Bronze Star and four Purple Hearts, serving as an infantryman in North Africa, Italy, French and Germany, including the Battle of the Bulge. He was a charter member of Remington American Legion Post 247.

The American Legion plans to name the post in his honor. The Fauquier County Veterans Bridge Council also has begun work to rename the Tin Pot Run bridge at Remington for Mr. Davis.

His father never made much of his World War II service, Scott Davis told the crowd as he received a plaque on behalf of the family.

“ ‘Those who didn’t come home are the heroes’,” Tech Sgt. Davis often said, according to his son.
