‘Mr. Veteran’ Will Direct Veterans’ Affairs
Karl Rohde’s life centers on the veterans community. The highly decorated Vietnam War vet who formerly served as commander of both the Putnam County and New York State Chapters of the VFW, was named last week by County Executive Paul Eldridge as the county’s veterans director succeeding John Scherer, 84, of Carmel, who headed the office since 1982.
