The community is invited to honor a lost warrior named Eugene Putney on July 18th. Gene grew up in Olathe before serving in Korea. In 1955 he was declared dead, however his body was never found. Putney was awarded the Purple Heart with Oak Leaf Cross, in addition to several other honors. On July 18, Gene’s friends and family will come together to honor him at 3 p.m. at the Olathe Assembly of God Church, to bring closure to those who have been waiting all these years.
