Remember Our Veterans

On this the 100th anniversary of the Armistice (11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, November 11, 1918), we take time to remember all our veterans. Cary Rhodomoyer, Society board member and volunteer provided this photo collage and his thoughts about his experience in Viet Nam:
"The photos show the aftermath from Hill 875, better known as Hamburger Hill. The 173rd Airborne Brigade was almost wiped out. More than 75% of the men were killed. I was a Crewchief-Doorgunner. I saw two Chinooks with Slingloads under them. When they got close, I noticed legs and arms sticking out of the cargo bags. That was the only way to get the casualties out of the jungle because there were so many of them. My worst battle."

It wasn't that long ago, and it keeps happening. This is one of a collection of 406 photos at the Society of the 2011 flood in September. Picture is of a house on West Main St., Bloomsburg, that was washed off its foundation because of the speed and amount of water. The damage to the area was so severe that it was the first time in the history of the Bloomsburg Fair that it was canceled. #CD-141
