Thank you for remembering this great man as we remember all veterans, especially
those who gave all. Every death in war is tragic, but this one is
more so. Historical records clearly show the Armistice was ready to be signed
days before, only to be held by so-called leaders on both sides. This was done
merely for the dramatic flourish of 'the eleventh hour of the eleventh day
of the eleventh month'.
MANY thanks to the DN for sharing this story.In years past I knew a
lot of the folks in Scipio, and am proud of them for keeping the memorial
maintained.Scipio is a great community!
