Reserves News

It has been cloudy snowy day - not to mention very cold.

Have been busy visiting friends I have known since 1962. My husband Millard and Lou Hoekstra met in Japan when they were 18 years old. They were both from Missouri.

Millard bought his first car at Jenkins and Wynne in Clarksville. Not long after that he was sent to Korea. He had Thanksgiving dinner in North Korea in PJONENG PEN. Lou and Millard stayed friends.

Millard passed away on the 12th of February 2017 and Lou was buried on the 12 of February 2020. That is friendship, We were the best of friends.

I stay in touch with lots of Lady RAKKASANS !!!!!!!!!!

This year 2020 marks the 70th anniversary of the start of the Korean War. The 187 Airborne participated in the war They were brave young man.

The RESERVE LADY RAKKASAN this year is Sue Blankenship Stallings. She is daughter of (the late Willard) and Roxie Blankenship. Everyone knows them well. They are true RAKKASANS!!!!!!!!!
