THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
National Guard Unit Guests at Co. Council
The Marinette County Council was hosted in June by Athelstane/Silver Cliff Unit 66 and members of Wisconsin Army National Guard Unit 1157 from Oshkosh were guests. Unit 66 member Linda Colburn opened the meeting by singing God Bless the USA. Five Legion units attended.
During the month Marinette County Units had 28 items published including Amberg 428 which hosted the Leadership meeting.
A brief business meeting was held to give ample time for the presentation by Unit 1157. They showed amazing pictures taken while in Afghanistan. It was very desolate there with very little greenery. The group had pictures of what they lived in for the year they were there and at times it was a big tent with few amenities which were shared with many. Other times it was a building with hot running water and flush toilets.
District President Linda Coppock and Sergeant of Arms Lisa Blom were present. Colburn and local guitarist, Dan Betts closed the meeting with four service songs and God Bless America.
No meeting will be held in July. The next meeting is Aug 17th in Niagara.
