Does anyone remember...

Any one remember Emery and Clara Tobin who printed the Alaska Sportsman or the troop ships going north that stopped in Ketchikan? I was the skinny kid that sold curios to the troops out of a red wagon. My teacher Mrs McGillvray let me out of class to do that. My daddy worked for Mrs McGillvray's son.

I hope every one has a great Memorial Day parade and a Veterans Day there this year. God bless all of you.
