This Veterans Day we honor the memory of Ilion High School veterans. Hiram Skinner and other classmates left school during their senior year to enlist in the Armed Forces. The story features some veterans from the Ilion High School Class of 1943. Hiram Skinner died November 5, 2014. He was a distinguished local businessman. Tragically, he lost his younger brother, Clayton, in a drowning accident, at Weber's Ice Pond in 1932. Three young boys drowned on that sad December day.
