LITCHFIELD -- Bruce Cottington of Litchfield has been appointed state commander of the Minnesota chapter of the national Veterans of Underage Military Service. VUMS National Commander Dr. William C. Morgan of Galloway, Ohio, made the appointment.

VUMS is an organization whose members were sworn into a branch of the U.S. armed forces before reaching the age of 17 for men, and age 20 for women prior to 1948. Cottington was 16 when he joined the U.S. Navy during World War II.

Morgan says Cottington has a wealth of military history as well as information about veterans' organizations in general, and is a long-standing VUMS member.
