John then joined the band with his guitar and sang some

pretty good tunes. John was a member of SDA Class of 1965,

joining the Army in 1966. His service ended in 2007. You may

 remember him as commander of B Troop, 302nd Calvalry in

Syracuse. After he retired he was appointed as Army Reserve

Ambassador for the state of Iowa, and 3 years later held the

same position in Nebraska. John then served as a Defense

Contractor for 6 years, ensuring Nebraska National Guard

and Reserve personnel had their jobs protected while serving

around the world. He fully retired in 2013 and he and his

wife Bridget live in the Kansas City area. It was one of the 

most enjoyable afternoons we've had in a long time!

Friday, 2-22-1918, The Otoe Union:

"The Unadilla home guards have selected for their uniforms

a two-piece khaki overall suit, jacket to be military cut. They

will also wear an army hat and khaki leggins." Measles were

no longer referred to as "German" measles, they were now

"Liberty" measles. Roy J. Buchanan and Mrs. Minnie May

Ware of Douglas, were married at the home of the bride's

parents, Mr. & Mrs. Enterline.
