Nursing degree led to Army service during Vietnam War BY SUE WEBBER CONTRIBUTING WRITER If you ask Trisha Bach Robbins when she decided to be a nurse, she talks about a photograph of herself at the age of 5 or 6, in which she wore a Clara Barton cape and hat and carried a little medical bag. “I was going to be a nurse; there was no question about it,” said Robbins, 67, who lives in Minnetonka with her husband, Jim. When she was 9, a cousin came to stay with the Bach family while she was in nurse’s training. That cinched it for Trisha. “If I wanted to be a nurse at 5, I was locked in at 9,” she said. When Robbins was 12, she was a junior volunteer at Methodist Hospital; at 16, she’d become a nurse’s assistant. Following graduation from St. Louis Park High School, earning a degree in nursing at the University of Wisconsin-Madison was Trisha Robbins a logical next step. The Vietnam War was well underway by then, and Robbins thought joining the Army would be a good way to use her training and see the world at the same time. “I decided to go into the Army because they would send me overseas,” she said. “I was young, and I wanted to do something different.” After training at Fort Sam Houston in Texas, Robbins was assigned to a hospital in Heidelberg, Germany. She was housed in BOQ (bachelor’s officer quarters) off base, which were similar to small apartments in a housing area.

The medical corps and nursing corps were not typical military, she said. Nursing and medical staff members all went into the Army as officers. She was a first lieutenant. Today’s nurses wear scrubs at work, but in those days, they were required to wear white dresses, white nylons and shoes, and a nurse’s cap. “I was fresh out of school but I was the only military nurse in the unit I was assigned to, so I became the head nurse,” Robbins said. “We were providing care for people who were stationed in Heidelberg, at all kinds of different posts around there. I was in charge, and I didn’t know enough to be scared. We were in the middle of a war, and they had to use the people they had. My saving grace was that the civilian nurses on my unit were old enough, experienced enough and kind enough to show me the ropes by example without embarrassing me.” As a result, Robbins said, “I learned more faster in my first year in the military than I had in four years in college.” She also had a chance to see places while she was there that she wouldn’t have seen otherwise, including France, Austria, England and Scandinavia. After a three-year European tour in Germany, Robbins was sent to a hospital in Augusta, Ga., and assigned to teach Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs). “I was teaching young men and women the basics, like how to take Trisha Bach Robbins’ early decision to be a nurse was illustrated in this photograph, taken NURSE - TO PAGE 4 when she was 6 years old.

Monument Monument is is centerpiece centerpiece of of Richfield’s Richfield’s Veterans Veterans Park Park

The Honoring All Veterans Memorial monument is at Veterans Memorial Park, 6429 Portland Ave. S., Richfield. The centerpiece is an illuminated bronze statue of Chuck Lindberg, a 50-year Richfield resident who was one of four U.S. Marines who were part of the first raising of the American flag on Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II. (Submitted photo) BY SUE WEBBER • CONTRIBUTING WRITER Although he is not a veteran, Reed Bornholdt is chair of Richfield’s annual Memorial Day service at 2 p.m. on Monday, May 26, at Veterans Memorial Park, 6429 Portland Ave. S. “I grew up in a small town in Iowa where the Avenue of Flags was put up at the cemetery on the edge of town for Memorial Day,” Bornholdt said. “The high school band played and there was a speaker. That’s just what I’m used to.” One branch of the military is featured each year in the Memorial Day observance at Veterans Park. This year, the Merchant Marines will be honored. A veteran from the Merchant Marines will speak, the 34th Infantry Division Red Bull concert band will play a medley of songs from all branches of the service, a retired Navy chaplain will offer an invocation, and a rifle squad will perform before “Taps” is played. The ceremony is enhanced by the park’s Honoring

All Veterans Memorial monument, which includes a special honor for one of Richfield’s best-known servicemen. The Honoring All Veterans Memorial monument was dedicated in 2008 in honor of Americans who have served their country in the U.S. military. A nonprofit task force worked to build the memorial to honor the memory of U.S. military veterans from all branches and provide a place for people to reflect and thank those who have served, are serving or will serve. The memorial is funded by the sale of engraved names on granite tablets that face a bronze statue of longtime Richfield resident Charles Lindberg. One of the traditions each Memorial Day is to pass a wireless microphone around the audience and ask people to tell a story about someone whose name is engraved on the memorial, according to Jim Topitzhofer, Richfield’s recreation service director. “It’s an emotional and inspiring thing,” Topitzhofer said.

The centerpiece of the monument features an illuminated bronze statue of Chuck Lindberg and the American flag. Lindberg, a 50-year resident of Richfield, was one of four U.S. Marines who were part of the first raising of the American flag on Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima in World War II. On the morning of Feb. 23, 1945, members of the 3rd Platoon, 28th Regiment, 5th Marine Division were given orders to climb and secure Mount Suribachi. Upon reaching the top, the Marines raised the first American flag on Japanese soil in the war. A native of Grand Forks, N.D., Lindberg moved to Richfield in 1951, worked as an electrician for 39 years, and raised two daughters and three sons with his wife, Vi. He returned to Iwo Jima for the 50th anniversary of the battle in 1995. When Lindberg died on June 24, 2007, he was the last survivor of the first flag raising at Iwo Jima. MONUMENT - TO PAGE 5

Nurse FROM PAGE 1 blood pressures and what high and low blood pressure mean,� she said. “In those days, only doctors, residents and military nurses could start IVs (intravenous therapy).� In addition to teaching, she spent part of her time on an orthopedic ward, where she came face to face with the ravages of the war through the young GIs who had been wounded on the front lines and sent back to the states to recuperate. “I remember one poor guy who had picked up a grenade to toss it and it blew up and took off both of his arms,� she said. “The kid, who was 18-20 years old, looked me right in the eye and said, ‘I’ll never be able to hug my girl.’ Captains aren’t supposed to cry. I had to leave the room. I’ll never forget that kid.� From Georgia, Robbins was sent to Brooklyn, N.Y., where she was a nurse at an outpatient clinic for a time before her duty was completed. Would she do the seven-year military stint over again? “Absolutely,� Robbins said. “I’m awfully glad I did it. There was nothing pulling me back home then.� Her next assignment, had she stayed in the military, would have been Vietnam, she said.

She is still in touch with friends who are now retired nurses and were stationed with her in Germany. Returning from her seven years of military service, Robbins found that having been a nurse and officer in the Army “made my resume look very good.� She had no trouble getting jobs as a head nurse or supervisor. Her career took off from there, leading to nursing jobs at Ramsey County Medical Center, and Lutheran Deaconess, Eitel and Abbott-Northwestern hospitals in the Twin Cities. She’s still working part-time as an IV-team nurse, and patients will sometimes ask her how long she’s been starting IVs. Her reply? “Oh, I started during the Vietnam War.� Jan Rabbers, a communications representative for the Minnesota Nurses Association, said it’s difficult to estimate the number of Minnesota nurses who have served in the military. She notes that the Nurse Cadet Corps started during World War I. The state’s Women’s Vietnam Memorial was initiated through the efforts of Minnesota nurses, Rabbers said. While she was coordinating the association’s centennial effort in 2005 and researching some of its history, Rabbers said, “I fell in love with these women who came up through the years. Their voices came out, and I was so honored to have those voices go through me. “There are so many amazing, poignant stories of bravery and courage,� Rabbers said. “You would be in tears, I guarantee it.�

Monument FROM PAGE 3 The Minnesota Legislature adopted a resolution in his honor in 1995. The Richfield memorial features six stone columns, each representing a different U.S. military branch: Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Merchant Marine Corps and Navy. Granite memorial tablets display the engraved names of 120 veterans. Each engraving displays the veteran’s name and branch of service, and provides a symbol to recognize soldiers that were prisoners of war, killed in action or missing in action. Lindberg’s widow, Vi, has been at the Memorial Day ceremony each year. Unfortunately, Chuck Lindberg died the year before the statue was erected in the park.

rian and artist who has been collecting information about World War II vets since 1998. He joined the Richfield Arts Commission in 2005, and suggested a veterans’ memorial at his first meeting. Once he’d met Chuck Lindberg and heard his story, Gorshe was inspired to design the memorial. “I wanted the focal point to be on the first flag-raising at Iwo Jima,” Gorshe aid. “Chuck said, ‘Don’t make it about me; make it about all veterans.’” From there, a group “sat down and figured out how to do it,” Topitzhofer said. They wrote a grant, and received $100,000 from the state in 2008, enough to get them started. “Travis and I went to the VFW and American Legion and asked for (board) members,” Topitzhofer said. “We wanted veterans to be the chair and vice chair, and we wanted to get people from

“I’VE BEEN IN THE RECREATION FIELD FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS, AND THIS IS THE SINGLE MOST REWARDING PROGRAM I’VE EVER WORKED ON.” -JIM TOPITZHOFER, RICHFIELD PARKS However, Chuck Lindberg’s daughter, Diane Steiger of Burnsville, said her father saw the spot selected for the monument three weeks before he died. “They had a dedication for that spot,” Steiger said. “Dad said he wasn’t a hero. Everybody we talked to who knew him said he was just a very humble, easygoing guy.” When the family came to last year’s Memorial Day celebration in Richfield, it was the first time they’d seen the entire finished product, Steiger said. “Richfield did a wonderful job,” she said. “It was really, really special. I’m so glad they took down the hill between the street and the monument.” Travis Gorshe designed the monument, serving as part of a committee chaired by Len Gudmunson. “Travis approached me in 2006 and showed me some sketches and said we should have a monument in the park,” Topitzhofer said. “He said nothing in the park signified the importance of veterans.” Gorshe, who lives across the street from the park, says he’s a military histo-

all the trades, since Chuck Lindberg had been an electrician. The trades have been really supportive.” The task force brought in specialists, and an architect donated his time to help get the concept from sketches to a design that could be bid out, according to Topitzhofer. The goal was to raise $750,000 for the project, and money is still being collected. The memorial, dedicated last summer, took five years to build, Topitzhofer said. “I’ve been in the recreation field for more than 30 years, and this is the single most rewarding program I’ve ever worked on,” he said. The veterans’ memorial is regarded as a regional attraction, not just something for Richfield, Topitzhofer said. The park is located centrally – near the airport, close to Fort Snelling and right next to the American Legion. “People come to visit and make an event out of it,” he said. “Half of the engraved plaques are from outside Richfield, some even from outstate.”

Groundbreaking for Military Family Tribute is June 4 at capitol BY SUE WEBBER CONTRIBUTING WRITER Bill Popp has never been in the military, but he has spent much of his adult life making sure that those who serve their country – as well as their families – are well taken care of. Popp, chair and president of POPP Communications, a voice, Internet and data communications company in Golden Valley, is the founder and president of the Minnesota Military Family Foundation, which started in 2004. His wife, Teri, is president of a separate project called Minnesota Military Family Tribute. “My wife’s father was in the Air Force (for) 27 years, and he faced many different challenges in holding the family together because they moved so much,” Popp said. Many other families have made similar sacrifices on behalf of their country, and that is the reason behind the creation of the foundation, Popp said. “The number one request we hear (from military people) is, ‘Take care of my family,’” Popp said. “In today’s environment, families and soldiers can be in close and fast contact through email and voicemail,” Popp continued. “When a soldier is distracted because of concerns about financial issues or difficulties with the family back home, every soldier in the squad is at risk because the soldier is not fully engaged in the patrol or mission. When the soldier is no longer focused on the financial situation at home, the soldier is able to stay engaged in the mission and protect the other soldiers in the squad to the fullest.” Contributions to the community-supported fund are “made by people who understand that there are many sacrifices that military families make and want to help soften the extraordinary financial hardships that may occur when a family member is deployed by providing a financial safety net,” the group’s website states. “When we help one soldier, we help all soldiers, “ Popp said. “When we help one military family, we’re helping all military families. When a service person knows and sees how the community steps forward, he knows the community cares and he knows that he matters.” The foundation, administrated by an all-volunteer, 11-member board of di-

rectors, creates a lot of impact that “ripples out in a very huge way,” Popp said. Money sent to the foundation is a way for people to “show their thanks and support to our deployed troops and their families,” according to the foundation’s website. Funds raised are distributed through grants and loans to Minnesota military families of deployed soldiers that need a little help. It honors requests for household expenses like utilities, rent and mortgages; household appliances and repair; auto repairs; transportation and lodging for families to visit a soldier in the hospital; and family counseling and medical expenses. “When people discover what we do, they say, ‘Sign me up to help. How can I help?’” said Popp, who estimates that the fund already has helped between 1,300 and 1,400 military families. Minnesota Military Family Tribute Bill and Teri, a retired attorney and former Special Assistant Attorney General for the state of Minnesota, are chairman of the board and president, respectively, of the Minnesota Military Family Tribute. Its mission is to build a tribute on the State Capitol Mall that will forever stand as a thank-you to every military and veteran family member – past, present and future. A military or veteran family member is defined as a spouse, significant other, child, parent, grandparent, sibling, or any other person a member or former member of the U.S. military defines as family. Groundbreaking for the Minnesota Military Family Tribute, the first of its kind in the nation, is set for 11 a.m. Wednesday, June 4, on the Minnesota State Capitol grounds in St. Paul. Popp said the idea for such a tribute came about after he was asked to speak at a Welcome Home event for Vietnam veterans in 2009. “My entire speech was a thank-you to family members,” Popp said. “No military families have suffered more than those of the Vietnam-era vets.” As part of the speech, Popp called out mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters of veterans, and asked for applause for them. “After the speech was over, I was surrounded by Vietnam veterans,” Popp said. “When I asked them why they were reaching out and thanking me, several

A rendering of rocks, or “Story Stones,” from each of the 87 counties in Minnesota will be arranged into a cluster of nine northern hemisphere constellations, and will include excerpts from correspondence sent by family members. (Submitted artwork) said, ‘Nobody ever thanked our families like that.’” That was the impetus for Popp’s work with state officials to get a military family tribute established. The goal to raise $1 million for the project has been successfully reached. “It took two years of fundraisers,” Teri Popp said. The funding was secured through private donations, including generous contributions from the Minnesota Military Family Tribute’s founding partners: Davisco Foods International Inc., Federated Insurance, POPP Communications, Starkey Hearing Technologies and Wells Fargo. HGA landscape architects won competitive bidding to design the tribute. “It came together so well,” Teri Popp said. “It was like putting a puzzle together. I learned more about trees, landscaping and dirt than I ever thought possible.” Framing the south end of the Minne-

sota State Capitol Mall, the tribute will consist of three main components: the Gold Star Table, Story Stones and the Military and Veteran Family Walkway. The bronze Gold Star Table recognizes the supreme sacrifice of Gold Star Families who have lost a loved one as the result of military service to the nation. Rocks, or “Story Stones,” from each of the 87 counties in Minnesota will include excerpts from correspondence sent by family members. The Walkway, according to Ted Lee of HGA Architects and Engineers, who commented about the project in an MFT newsletter, will be rows of sugar maples forming “a graceful arc which responds to the season.” The dedication for the completed project is scheduled for Saturday, June 13, 2015. “When you work on the State Capitol Mall, you have to have everything reserved well in advance,” Teri Popp said.
