Another year has passed and the memory of fifty or more veterans' days begins to cloud the significance of this impor- tant celebration. It becomes clear that some study may be necessary to clearly understand the seemingly lower signifi- cance of this day to contemporary school children, and others. As the ranks of our local veterans' organizations begin to thin due to a lack of participation or interest, it might be a good time to take a quick look at just what these organizations have done and continue to do within our community and rural Cottonwood County. Locally, our American Legion has lost members at a higher rate than our Veterans of Foreign Wars. Some of our long- time residents can recall when Saturday night bingo was a sta- ple in the social framework of Westbrook. Legion members took turns in working, and Bingo night was a primary source of income for our Legion Post. As the Legion became less active due to the loss of many of the WWI and WWII veterans , the Legion Hall was closed, due mainly to the actions of the State of Minnesota with regard to finances, etc. Many legion members continue to assist with the VFW in other endeavors, while several members belong to both organizations.

I sat at home this morning waiting to go remember and started to write." WO2 Anthony Devanny3 YORKSVirtutis Fortuna Comes We are indeed the lucky and unlucky ones, As we are the ones who have lived to tell the tales of those we once knew We are the ones who carry those scars of things seen, done and lost We are the ones who must never let those who are not here be forgotten by the new We are the ones who will never need to be reminded that "We will Remember Them" )As We are the ones who will always remember those we forever call friend.
