Checkerboard is appreciated

I received my Checkerboards (third and fourth issues 2011). I have read them from cover to cover. You are to be commended for putting together an epic publication.

The coverage of the final convention, in word and photos, of this historic event is a tribute to the 99th Infantry Division to live on for all to read years from now.

The M&Ms, the Diggers, and Edgard and Josette Pots are among the many my wife Donna and I have met. They are dedicated to the 99th and the USA.

Every school student should read the accounts of the ordinary young citizen of long ago doing extraordinary deeds of valor for their country and breaking the chain of despotism.

To our 99th Checkerboard friends – Godspeed.
