Ozark County’s Gold Star Mothers, Pamela Hengen, left, and Irene Corp, last week visited the Ozark County War Memorial where the names of their sons are engraved. Irene Corp’s son, PFC Jerry Corp, died in Vietnam on April 20, 1970, less than a week after his 20th birthday. Pamela Hengen’s son, PFC Matthew J. England, 22, died on June 8, 2011, in Iraq.
