CROOKSTON, Minn. (AP) — A special tribute to the military service of African-Americans was a look back to the past, but organizers said the event also was a way to inspire all people to go out and “make a difference” in their own way just as civil rights leaders have done throughout American history.

A successful season for the Jamestown College men’s soccer team ended with another first.
Freshman Dominic O’Connor became the first Jimmie men’s player to be named to the NAIA Unaffiliated Group Team.
O’Connor, a freshman striker from Lancashire, Great Britain, scored eight goals and had three assists as the Jimmies set a program-record for wins in a season with an 8-7-3 mark.
In mid-April, I traveled with other North Dakota veterans to Washington to see the World War II Memorial on a trip sponsored by Roughrider Honor Flight.
How can we ever thank those people enough who made this trip possible? All that volunteer work, all the time and effort it took by so many, trip after trip. It was so great to once again be with men we had so much in common with. Same age, same background, similar feelings of past experiences that we could only share with other veterans.
