the US Army and began his military career at Ft.Loan on November 20, 1942. From there he went to San AntonioTexas, then on to NorfolkVirginia. On his way to
Italy his ship was delayed

Congratulations to one of the good guys, Bob Lutes.
Rick Jacobus brought to us Kimberly Langston, from the SwedishMedicalCenter. Kimberly
informed us about the "Shots For Tots" program. SFT is a program
designed to insure that all kids in Colorado get the immunization
shots they need. Colorado ranks low (67%) in
the percentage of children getting immunization protection. This is
because of high cost, large number of kids not on record, and families without
medical insurance. SFT offers free immunization clinics starting in July
on every third Saturday of the month from . to . Locations will be announced and rotated from month to month.
The Tri County Health Department is involved with this program. Their goal
is to immunize 100 kids per month. Three shots per child costs $150,000
per year. For reference, Kimberly can be reached at 303-788-4630.
Thank you Rick for a fine program.
