Letter to the editor: Lake County patriotism shows
From Paul von Goertz
1st Minnesota Volunteers Infantry, Knife River
I marched in the Heritage Days parade as part of Battery I of the 1st U. S. Artillery, which is comprised of Civil War re-enactors. We were part of the color guard that was led by the American Legion and included Northland Vietnam Veterans.
I was very impressed by the response from parade attendees as our colors passed by. People stood, removed hats, covered their hearts and then applauded. This was true along the length of the parade.
So nice to know respect for our flag and thanks to all who serve our country is alive and well in Lake County.
