Ti vet celebrates 93rd birthday on Veterans Day
Charles “Gusher” Smith has proudly served for decades. A World War II veteran, Smith has long been a civic leader in Ticonderoga — perhaps best known for his work with fellow vets and his years as the local scoutmaster. Smith was honored along with other veterans during a Veterans Day program at Ticonderoga Elementary School. Veterans Day, Nov. 11, just happens to be Smith’s 93rd birthday.
