Sand Lake Alumni to salute Veterans


Front row: (L to R) Jerry Bergman, Bob Duschane, James Plite. Back row: (L to R) Charlie Northup, Harvey Scheck, Don Roberts. These six Sand Lake graduates enlisted in the U.S. Army, in October 1950, during the Korean War. This picture was in the G.R. Press with a story of small town friends enlisting together. All six went to Camp McCoy, Wisconsin, for basic training. Afterward two were sent to Korea, one to Japan, two to Germany, and one remained at Camp McCoy. The six were discharged in October 1952, found jobs, and were married in the summer of 1953. Four couples were married for 50 years or more, and two couples lost their spouses early on in their marriages. Not a divorce among them!
