June 1, 2018
Northern-Sun Print

The Gladbrook/Lincoln area Memorial Day Services were conducted on a very warm summer day May 28th. The service was coordinated by the Avenue of Flags Committee of the Gladbrook American Legion & Auxiliary and Lincoln AMVETS and Auxiliary.

Rev. Carol Kress of the Gladbrook UMC gave the address for our veterans at the 15 Mile Grove Cemetery, Maple Hill Cemetery, Badger Hill Cemetery, Chapel Cemetery, Union Grove Cemetery, Union Grove Beach (for those lost at sea) Crystal Cemetery, and Gethmann Cemetery. At these services there were laying of wreaths, honor guard & firing squad and TAPS.

At 11:00 a larger service was conducted at the Gladbrook All-Veterans Memorial. A nice crowd enjoyed the preservice patriotic music by the G-R Band.

After Rev. Kress began the program with a prayer, the G-R Band played the "National Anthem" and Legionnaires raised the flags. The American flag was raised by Korean War veteran, Chuck Willer.

Rev. Carol Kress address was entitled. "The Shining City Upon a Hill". She stated: "This phrase is biblical in origin, coming from the parable of salt and light. It is part of the sermon on the mount. In the gospel of Matthew 5:14 Jesus tells the listeners, 'You are the light of the world. A city that is set upon a hill cannot be hidden.' The phrase has found common use in the lexicon of politicians who are of all stripes, colors, parties, caucus, hair styles and body shapes. The first time it was used was in an oratory from 1630 given by the Puritan John Winthrop. He delivered the speech while the Pilgrims were still aboard the Arbella, anchored in Massachusetts Bay. Winthrop sought to remind them that their new colony would be 'as a 'city upon a hill', watched by the world.' Therefore it should be founded upon the principles of God and be committed to the principles of 'communal charity, affection and unity.' Winthrop went on to caution the colonists that they would either "uphold their covenant or be made a story, a by-word through the sword of God's judgment."

The words of John Winthrop were a gift to our ancestors and they are a gift to us. Like our ancestors, we are committed to the live in accordance to these principles. Ronald Reagan was one politician who reflected on the words of John Winthrop. (Let's remain mindful that presidents from George Washington to Barak Obama have lifted up his quotes regarding the 'shining city on a hill'.) This is what Reagan said during his presidential campaign of 1980. "I have quoted John Winthrop's words from his speech on the Arbella more than once. For I believe Americans today are every bit as committed to the vision of a shining 'city on a hill,' as were those long-ago colonists. The ones who now strive for that city do not come from one race. They are white or black, red or yellow. They do not come from one religion. They are Jews, Muslim and Christian. They do not share politics as they are conservative and liberal. But all of them are citizens of the United States. Therefore we must unite with all of them in mutuality as proud Americans. All Americans are in awe of what has gone before us in history. All Americans are hopeful for what is still to come. All Americans need to be willing to make our own contribution to the city on a hill so that it will brightly shine."

We are committed to a higher good. That shared ideal under-girds the national holiday we are observing now. We are here to pay tribute to the fine Americans and warriors who stood up for that higher good despite the high price of it. They are the ones who have paved the street leading to that shining city. They deserve our respect. It is their sacrifice that allows us to stand united under the protection of the banner that bears colors of red, white, and blue.

In an American Legion publication regarding Memorial Day, it is reported since the American Revolution, more than one-million military lives have been cut short by war. This is a significant number. However, I will only tell of two of these one-million souls:

The first telling is of a 21-year -old aviator from Arizona. He fought one hundred years ago in the World War 1. This serviceman was known as a Flying Ace because he was young, fearless and remarkable. Army man Frank Luke claimed 18 aerial victories over German fighter planes in 18 days. Reports of his exploits filled newspapers in England and America, On September 29, 1918, he was chased by eight enemy air craft who finally managed to shoot him down over France. Surrounded by the enemy he defended himself as best he could before receiving a wound in the chest and dying on the battle field. This American Fighter Pilot, Frank Luke, became the first pilot to receive the Medal of Honor. His memory is held in high regard by in a permanent display at the National Aviation Hall of Fame. This was one-hundred years ago.

The second telling occurred fifty years ago. It happened half a world away from France on the Asian continent. Lt. Commander Sharon Lane was a volunteer with the Army Nurse Corps. She chose to enter service because many young men from her Ohio community had been drafted and she realized there was a great need for nurses to administer to their care. At first the Army assigned her to a hospital in Denver, Colorado. But Lt. Commander Lane was eager to go over-seas. So in 1968, she was assigned to the 312th Evacuation Hospital in Chu Lai, South Vietnam. This hospital was under frequent enemy fire. In a letter home, Lt. Lane told of one attack, writing: "We got as many patients as we could under the beds and we put mattresses over the ones in traction. What an interesting place! No one is scared any more days like this are just a part of the job." It was a dangerous job and Lt. Commander Sharon Lane became the first nurse to die in Vietnam.

Unlike Serviceman Frank Luke, there is no Wikipedia page dedicated to Lieutenant Lane. She is not honored in a Hall of Fame. She did not receive high-medals such as those received by Audie Murphy (the most decorated soldier of World War 2). Yet she, like all the other fallen whose stories and names we do not know, was every inch a hero as were all the others who died without official award and great public recognition.

Although we will not do it, each of the one-million fallen soldiers deserve to have their story told. We will not tell their stories now, but we will recognize they have many great tales to share. They are heroes. The one-million remind us that by appearance, heroes look to be diverse. But by heart, they are united in their stand. Let us united with them in our shared love of this shining dream of a city on a hill. Surely, we can agree it is a dream for which it is worthy to give all that we have and all that we are. The United States is worthy of our loyalty. If need be, the United States of America is worthy our death.

All Soldiers, Sailors, Air Corps, Coast Guards, Marines, Infantry and Reservists deserve to receive gratitude and respect. Gold Star families are also deserving of this as they have sacrificed a precious gift on behalf of our nation too.

That is the purpose of setting aside the national holiday named "Memorial Day". We are here because of each one of these people. May God bless those who have served in the armed forces. May God bless any who have been in harm's way on behalf of this great nation. May God bless the fallen heroes and their families. May God bless the United States of America."

After Rev. Kress address, two poppy and clover wreaths were laid in front of the two veterans stones by Gladbrook Auxiliary President Jeanne Paustian and AMVET Auxiliary President Karen Lage.

The service concluded by the G-R Band playing "God Bless America" followed by the benediction, the salute by the firing squad, and TAPS. G-R student Sam Cahalan did a beautiful job of playing TAPS. Members of the Honor Guard & Firing Squad included members of the Lincoln AMVETS , Gladbrook Legion & SAL members: Ron Busch, Loren Frericks, Jim Gethmann, Paul Koester, Dennis Haack, Bob Knaack, Leo Lohse, John Clausen, Russ Rosenberger, Jim Bush, Jim Schneider, Doug Sienknecht, Tony Sienknecht, Richard Denbow, and Steve Fevold.

Poppies and program books, with all the veterans listed from all the cemeteries, were distributed by Jr. Auxiliary members Bryleigh & Kenzie Bartel, and Jordan Sherman, and Unit member Chris Hickman.

Many enjoyed the Memorial Day dinner hosted by the Gladbrook Legion & Auxiliary at the Memorial Building.
