"Buck Flech is a Navy man from Chippewa. That is his ship in the background; it is a LST (Landing Ship Tank). The guys from Battery C heard the ship had arrived and went down to see what was happening and ran into a fellow Chippewan. This is one of my favorite pictures of Dad" (Cate Reiter 03-03-04).

"Mike Ramsey served with Battery C, but he was a 'draftee' from LaCrosse" (Howard and Cate Reiter 03-03-04).
