Honoring fallen heros

Posted: January 4, 2012 - 12:33pm
Yesterday, I had stopped out at our State Veterans Cemetery near Camp Ripley, to pay a visit to my fallen brothers, Larry and Kenny Wenzel.   I gazed over the entire large field of fallen soldiers from past wars of WWI, WWII, Korean War, Viet-Nam, Persian Gulf, and the war in Iraq.  Fallen soldiers that lay at this cemetery numbers in the  thousands.  Each headstone had a large green pine Christmas Wreath, touch with a large Red Bow, which seemed to jump out at you as they leaned and rested on these gray headstones.  Tony Wenzel, Randall, MN
