Thoughts About the 58th: I have nothing but respect for the men I served with in this organization. Through the years we have come in contact with large groups of them and we always enjoy reminiscing the past.
Comments:
I also have great respect for Dennis Savage and the group who laid the plans for this Memorial. I also want to show gratitude for those who volunteered their services to make this all come true.
