Letter to the editor: Recalling a local vetI recently visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington.
I recently visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington. In the late spring of 1968, a few blocks south of the old Two Harbors High School, I remember walking by a woman who was crying as she talked with a friend. I learned that Michael Smoger had died in Vietnam.
I did not know Michael personally, but I know others who served then and serve now in our military forces. I have walked by the memorial previously. This time I looked for Michael Smoger’s name.
Panel 69E, line 2.
Thank you to all those who serve our country and their families.
From Ray Piirainen, Two Harbors
