SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, June 2, 2010 Page 12 Memorial Day m From page 1 Baker thanked the commu- nity for supporting him while he was serving in Iraq -- he noted many soldiers do not get letters and the support -- "it's communities like this that are special," he said. In closing he said, "remember the soldiers that paid the price for our free- dom." The band played the Armed Forces Medley, fol- lowed by a brief ceremony in front of the school. Wreaths were place on crosses commemorating war dead from all wars. The pro- gram was concluded with the playing of taps and a rifle salute. Westbrook Memorial Day Services were held in Westbrook at the WWG High School gym. The colors were advanced by the Westbrook American Legion and VFW. The high school band per- formed the National Anthem, and Dennis Phelps gave the invocation. Leon Mischke gave the Memorial Introduction and Phelps read the VFW prayer. Jon Madson and Leon Mischke read the Roll Call of fallen comrades, as Legion Auxiliary member Agnes Vortherms and VFW Auxiliary member Anita Phelps placed poppies on the grave. Steven Pfarr sang a spe- cial musical selection. Paul Vosberg gave the Memorial address. Vosberg talked about the stories that have never been told. He asked people to tell their stories to their family, kids, and grandchildren. Vosberg told his story of his career in he army. He joined the Army National Guard when he was just 17 years old in 1986. At that time he didn't think much about war. But in 1991 he received a message that he had been activated and had just two days to get ready to deploy to the middle east, On this he Alan Cohrs placed a wreath at the Veterans Memorial Monday morning. spent about six months in Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait. A couple years later while attending Water Purification School he was notified that he was again being activated. In 1993 he was de-activated. Ten years later in 2003 he was called to active duty again for "Iraqi Freedom," this time the active duty was in Iraq and he stayed there for 500 days. When he left he told his children, Erin and Colin, when they looked at the moon they should think of him, because he would be looking at the same moon. During his tour there he said he made a lot of close friends "I miss them, and I will never forget them. That's my story. Now it is time to tell yours." "Tell them about the blis- ters on your feet -- tell them about the haircuts -- tell them about inspections, rev- eille, retreat, and chow time. Tell them about the smell of a foreign land, tell them about nick names, tell them about the feeling of coming home. We made sacrifices, but our families also made sacrifices," Vosberg said. "A farm boy from Dovray got to see a foreign land, compliments of Uncle Sam," he said. The Walnut Grove American Legion and Auxiliary retired the colors from the gym Monday morning. "We should be thankful for the young men who con- tinue to preserve our free- dom -- Memorial Day is a day about remembrance," he concluded. Following the address the band performed two patri- otic numbers. Then Dennis Phelps gave the Benediction before the retiring of the the colors. Following the ceremony the VFW and Legion members held a ceremony of placing a wreath at the memorial at the Westbrook Cemetery. The honor guard gave a rifle salute followed by Taps. with Tom by Tom Blair Although mankind may some day reach the goal of achieving the perfect Chili recipe, the origin of Chili will remain a mystery. It has been a matter of debate around campfires and kitchen tables all over this great land. Historians have discovered that the early inhabitants of Central and South America enjoyed a dish of meat spiced with chilies. However, Chili, as we know it today, is the result of American culinary ingenuity. Texas cowboys and trail cooks served Chili on the long cattle drives of the late nine- teenth century. Trail cooks would combine jerky, spices and lard then pound them together to make Chili bricks. When it was time for a meal the bricks would be recon- stituted and beans would be added to the mix. The Chili was devoured with relish by the hungry trail hands. Cooks were rated by the quality of the "bowl of red" they served.
