HONOR ROLL

I POSTED A PICTURE IF YOU SCROLL DOWN ON THIS PAGE OF THE WW2 HONOR ROLL THAT IS COMING BACK TO MAZEPPA.  AS I GET MORE DETAILS I WILL POST ON THE SITE.  IF YOU GO INTO THE PHOTO ALBUM THERE IS ANOTHER PICTURE OF THE HONOR ROLL AND A SHORT STORY OF WHO MADE IT.  A GREAT STORY WITH ALL OF THIS AS THIS SITE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OF THIS HAPPENING.  A LITTLE OVER A YEAR AGO I ATTENDED THE WEDDING OF ONE OF MY SCHOLARSHIP KIDS. AT THE RECEPTION I WAS SEATED NEXT TO THE FOLKS THAT BOUGHT THE EVERITT'S HOME IN MAZEPPA.  THEY TOLD ME OF THE HONOR ROLL THEY FOUND IN THE BARN AND THAT LEAD ME TO GETTING THE ORIGINAL PICTURE I POSTED ON THIS SITE.  RELATION OF THE WAGNERS SPOTTED THE PICTURE AND AS THEY SAY THE REST IS HISTORY AND THE HONOR ROLL IS COMING HOME.
