PFC Brandon Dibble returns from Iraq By Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune WESTBROOK -- In the summer the temperatures reach 140 degrees, and the wind blows the sand so hard you can barely see things a few feet away. According to Army Reservist Brandon Dibble, it is a lot like driving in a winter whiteout in Minnesota. Dibble a 2002 Westbrook Walnut Grove graduate had been interested in the mili- tary since he was quite young. He also credits the influence of his uncle, Paul Vosberg, who served in Desert Storm. After 9-11 Brandon felt a sense of duty to his country and in February of 2002 he joined the Army Reserve on the .... February delayed entry program. On July 28th he left for basic ' training at Fort Leonardwood, Missouri. After completing 9 weeks of basic he started his AIT training for fuel transporta- tion. After finishing AIT in November he returned home and became a member of the 353rd transportation unit out of Buffalo. In January of 2003 Brandon started, school at St. Cloud technical College. While he was in school he continued meeting with his unit in Buffalo and attended a 4 day school at Fort McCoy in Wisconsin. Later in the month he got called to Fort Snelling to do paperwork for possible activation. 10th, just a year and a day after he joined he got the call to report to duty at Buffalo where he spent three days getting all of their equip- ment ready fbr deployment. From there they went to Fort McCoy to prepare for their deployment to Iraq via Kuwait. After they arrived in Kuwait they worked out of a base there supplying fuel for the war effort, later they moved into Iraq where they travelled to many areas sup- plying fuel for aircraft and .... other equipment.

As a member of the Minnesota Farm Bureau board, my husband Dave has spent countless hours (and sometimes days) on Farm Bureau business. One of the few perks of board members is attending the American Farm Bureau Federation annual meeting, which is taking place in Hawaii this week. I had promised to send back an article about Pearl Harbor for this week's paper, but somehow, the tour plans didn't get from the travel agency to the appropriate people here; conse- quently, that article will have to wait for next week. The change in plans was frustrating, because we arrived at our hotel, the Sheraton Waikiki, about 1 AM Minnesota time on Saturday night and were at the meeting place for the tour bus at 6:45 AM (10:45 AM CST) Sunday morning. The devotion service for the con- vention on Sunday morning put our circumstances into perspective. One of the first thoughts we heard went like this, "You can tell a lot about a person by how he handles a rainy day or lost luggage." The Minnesotans could also include a major change in plans in that adage. That philosophy is nothing new to farmers. How many times have major plans been postponed or can. celled because of tending to sick ani- mals, putting up hay, or having equip- ment breakdown that delayed finish- ing a particular farming activity. All Minnesotans, farmers or non-farmers, know about the effects of ice d snow in the winter or strong storms in the summer.
