MILO - A Marine who received two Purple Hearts for injuries he suffered in Iraq joined other veterans Friday at a special assembly conducted by Milo elementary and middle school pupils. Cpl. Keith Dawson, 21, who was injured by shrapnel from roadside bombs on two separate occasions near and in Fallujah, listened intently as pupils and teachers sang and played patriotic songs during the annual event to honor veterans. Among the pupils was his brother-in-law, George Cowing, who is in the fourth grade.
