Names missing from Veterans’ Wall a frustration for family members

Thursday, June 7, 2018

I had heard about the new memorial in Columbus, Mont., honoring all the service men and women in Stillwater County. I was thankful it had been done. This Memorial weekend, my daughter and I drove to Columbus to visit it and see my husband’s name on it!

What a disappointment to find it was not there.

Robert D. Hoagland of Rapelje enlisted in the Air Force in April 1951. He proudly served his country and spent time in Korea during the conflict. Also, Alvin and Raymond Gorr of Rapelje were in the Air Force at the same time.

Why are they not honored? I left a tear where Robert’s name should be!
