M and Ms to attend San Antonio convention

Marcel and Mathilde Schmetz have agreed to attend the convention in San Antonio this summer.

The 99th board of directors approved a proposal for the association to pay for part of the Schmetz' travel expenses to the convention. However, that stipend will not cover everything.

A fund has been established to help with expenses for their visit to San Antonio.

Send donations to the M&M Travel Fund, Donna Bernhardt, PO Box 99, Marion KS 66861. Please specify "M&M Fund."

The Belgian couple has welcomed 99'ers in their home and spent time taking them places in Belgium where the 99th Division was located in November-December 1944.

They have the "Remember Museum 1939-45" honoring all veterans who were involved in their liberation from the Germans.
