Clyde Rainey
Wendy, were you the one who requested the grave photos for Clyde Rainey? I fulfilled that request and then noticed that the requestor's name disappeared. If you're related (or just interested), you might find what I discovered interesting. Clyde was part of a "Spruce Squadron," which piqued my interest. It's a really interesting story of how the US Army became intertwined with the lumber industry here in the Northwest during WWI, and Clyde was a part of that. I connected with Bob Swanson, who posted some history of this unit. He has updated his site to include Clyde's gravestone and his unit history.

Clyde taught me this bit of history. I'm grateful.
Cheers,
Colyn
