I saw your name at the traveling Wall at Buffalo Chip at Sturgis, SD last weekend and made a rubbing. If I ever do one thing, I'm going to make sure that the Koochiching County boys who paid the ultimate price are never going to be forgotten. Thanks, Anton. And please pass on a heartfelt thanks to Earl, Bruce, Melvin, Doug, Ricky, Richard, Jerry, James, John, Steve, William,Woodrow and Barney.
