Remembering Edwin Haselgard on Veterans Day

I did not expect to find a Veterans Day post at the Dunfugin Ramp yesterday, but here we are remembering the service and sacrifice of Edwin Haselgard, who has a memorial at the Dunfugin Ramp. I looked into his story a bit and was quite moved by it. Here’s one version by a Robert Drexler you might find interesting. Each of these stories pulls at your heart in gratitude to the veteran and to their families. I do not know the story of how Edwin’s memorial ended up at Dunfugin, but I find it beautifully appropriate.
