Members of the U.S. Navy lined up on the east side of Henderson County Courthouse recently for a ceremony that led to Petty Officer John Cox being re-inducted into the U.S. Navy for four more years. Cox, the son of former Cedar Creek Pilot reporter John Cox, was sworn in by Cpt. Scott McKee, better known in Henderson County as the District Attorney. Before Cox was inducted for four more years, he had to withdraw from the Navy, and McKee handled that ceremony, also. The 39-year-old Cox has been in the Navy for the last 14 years. The officers lined up with Cox are from the Dallas and Athens naval recruiting offices. They were Petty Officer Joseph Dominque, Petty Officer John Cox, NCC Marcel Blanford, Senior Chief Frederic Rogers, Petty Officer Eric Davis, NCC Jason VanHorn, Master Chief Shannon Thornton and Cpt. Scott McKee.
