Noel Cummins, Floyd Hermans, Bob Frink and Ron Herz on behalf of the Milbank-Sisseton Chapter 19 of the DAV presented Vietman Vets; Still coming Home to Jody Carlson, Library Director, for the Grant County Public Library.  The book tells the stories of 31 Vietnam Veterans who served between 1961 and 1974. These stories are of ordinary men and women who open up about their witness to heroism, sacrifice, loss, success, suffering and even battlefield humor. Reading their stories will in a small way make you a part of their life and keep their legacy alive.
