Walking Military Memorial: 'What a treat to view'

To the Editor:

I stayed in Luverne last Friday evening and went downtown Saturday morning. What a treat to view the patriotism in each of the business windows as I walked the entire Main Street from one end to the other. Every business is to be commended for the part they played in making Memorial Day 2017 the most special.

I remember well the National Guard with citizens parades in downtown Luverne and how much my family enjoyed watching that event on Memorial Day.

The National Guard Company Commander Captain Frank Walker and I would brief your All American Owner, Publisher Macintosh, who would write a story for Rock County Herald to spread the news with detail to the area.

Those were great times and I commend Luverne for keeping the torch of freedom and patriotism alive and sharing it with its people and visitors.

The Historical Museum on East Main Street is also a treasure.
