Area proves it remembers

On Friday, this corner listed six men from Dunkirk, who left to serve in Vietnam, but never returned. Those men included: Curtis Eugene Crawford, William Fellinger, Dahl J. LaPorte, Harry Kaus Jr., Vincent James Rossotto and Robert Samuelson.

We forgot one — and plenty of readers let us know about it. Our thanks to each and every one of you who contacted us.

In addition to these men, Ronald William Freeman was another Dunkirk resident who died while serving in 1969.

Our apologies for the omission, but how great it is that so many readers cared enough — and remembered — a local hero.
