The General, the Aged Marine, and the Yellow Lark a cane of the rest of his life because of those wounds. On the way back to my chair, I noticed a Marine from World War II struggling to set up his chair. I offer my assistance but he replies, “I can still do this by myself!” He calls me “Sonny” even though he’s only a couple years older than me. If I had been born in ‘27 or ‘28, instead of ‘29, I would have been drafted into the U.S. Army. But my time came later, from 1950-1957. A Cub Scout hands me a printed program, and to my surprise, the speaker is Lt. General Edward A Waldon, Commander of the 47th Infantry Division, from 1953-1957. He was Company Commander of “C” Company 682nd Engineer Battalion-47th Division Minnesota National Guard. He was Company Commander and I was the Company First Sergeant. We had an outstanding unit. Present today are other former members of Company “C”: Lt. Col. BY RALPH W. OLSON Ron Andreen, Lt. Kelly Forstrom, Arne Gynald, MI Sgt. Aldrich Assen, Fred Gunderson, and others. We enjoyed our reunion, recalling comrades and times FAIRVIEW CEMETERY, Memorial Day, 2003 — I past. But now it is time for the General to take his awake to a bright, sunny day, just a wisp of clouds seat with the other VIPs. and a light breeze. There is sure to be a large crowd The Willmar High School Band renders a much at Fairview Cemetery today. After a light breakfast, I toss a lawn chair into the back of the old green pickup appreciated march that sets the tone of the service. Old Glory flaps in the breeze at the gate of Soldiers and I’m on my way! Rest – two concentric circles, 58 military markers in I parked near the Calvary Cemetery.

The veterans’ council was up early this morning, making sure that every veteran in the county usury banner, the Minnesota state flag, and the POW and resting here is honored with a flag. The lawns have flag. Save for the heavy boot, it is quiet, very quiet. The band plays our national anthem. We stand been mowed and the lovely trees frame the picture. with hands over our hearts, hats off. I catch a glimpse I hurry across to Fairview and set up my chair of the aged Marine delivering a perfect hand salute; just across from the dias of chairs and microphones wrist and forearm in perfect alignment, with the reserved for the speakers.

is introduced and “On Flanders Fields” is read. An Eagle Scout reads the names of the deceased veterans. Another American Legion Boy Stater reads General Logan’s orders establishing Memorial Day services. As the reading continues, a bright yellow lark swoops over the crowd, then almost straight up to the longest branch of the tallest oak. From time to time, I glance up at the branch on which the lark has perched himself, buffeted by the breeze. A sentinel, perhaps? The General delivers a fine address to do the right thing, a challenge to serve God and one’s fellow men. Darrell Larson comes forward to also read “On Flanders Field” as only Darrell’s rich bass voice can. Wayne Emberland commands the Honor Guard. Military rifles at arms – Ready! Aim! Fire! Fire! Fire! The names of Veterans who have died this past year are read, taps are played. There is not a dry eye in the crowd. The yellow lark is not disturbed, but stays sure and steady at his post. I now look up at the longest branch of the tallest oak and the sentinel lark is gone. He’s missed it, he’s missed the sight of the single tear coursing down the cheek of the aged Marine, the tear the falls to hallowed ground. The book is closed, the prayers are said, and we are part of the uncounted dead, thrice happy if we can hear some soul say, “I live because he passed my way!” (John Wells).

Burton Sundberg I was drafted into the Service on 8/29/1945 as a recent graduate of Klamath Union High School, Klamath Falls, OR in June 1945. In the meantime my parents moved back to Isanti, Minnesota, so upon my discharge from the Army my home became Isanti. After receiving a degree in Library Science from the U of MN, I came to Willmar to BURTON SUNDBERG direct the formation of the Pioneerland Library System, which is still in operation, with the Willmar Library as the HQ. My Army career was different, in that my weapon was a typewriter, working in the 9th Division Finance Corps, in Augsburg, Germany, until being sent back to the States for discharge. In addition, I was the youngest of 4 brothers in the service during WWII. The oldest was Alex Sundberg, who was part of a crew of a B26 bomber that was gunned down over Holland and instantly killed. My other two brothers served in the Pacific Theatre and came home safely. ALEX SUNDBERG

Paynesville Native Earns Basic Historian Qualification Aboard Oldest Commissioned Warship Afloat: USS Constitution BY SEAMAN KATRINA MASTROLIA, USS CONSTITUTION PUBLIC AFFAIRS BOSTON - Aviation Ordnanceman 3rd Class Tanner Schaefer, a native of Paynesville, Minnesota, earned the basic interpretive historian qualification aboard USS Constitution, March 11. Duty aboard USS Constitution is one of the Navy’s special programs, and all prospective crewmembers must meet a high standard of sustained excellence and interview to be selected for the assignment. “Learning the vast history of the ship was such an honor, and I am glad my hard work paid off,” said Shaefer. Schaefer, a 2015 graduate of Paynesville Area High School, has served the Navy for five years and his previous command was

USS George Washington (CVN 73). The active-duty sailors stationed aboard USS Constitution normally provide free tours and offer public visitation to more than 600,000 people each year as they support the ship’s mission of promoting the Navy’s history, maritime heritage, and raising awareness of the importance of a sustained naval presence. USS Constitution, the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat, played a crucial role in the Barbary Wars and the War of 1812, actively defending sea lanes from 1797 to 1855. The ship earned the nickname of Old Ironsides during the War of 1812, after British cannonballs were seen bouncing off the ship’s wooden
