Ceremony Honoring John Paulson,
World War II Veteran
Saturday, October 29th - 1pm
Veteran's Memorial Site
John Paulson, one of the original 164th Infantry Division who served in WWII, was honored in a special ceremony on Saturday, October 29th, at the Carrington Cemetery.
John Paulson accepts U.S. flag and honorary documents
from Bernie Wagner, past commander as well as friend.
John was one of the North Dakota National Guard infantrymen who landed on Guadalcanal in 1942 (as part of the first U.S. Army unit to engage in offensive action during World War II) where he served our country for two years. By the end of the war, John had earned the Bronze Star for his bravery and courage.
Coat of Arms - 164th Infantry Regiment
Motto: I Am Ready
During this special ceremony at the Veterans' Memorial site, John was presented with a United States flag which has been certified (by Alan M. Hantman, Architect of the Capitol, FAIA) as having been flown over the United States Capitol in 2007.

Along with this certified flag,
John was presented with a beautifully inscribed document which
states in part:
Happy 50th Anniversary!
Dr. Don and Bonnie (Berge) Nicolson
children and grandchildren would love to honor their loving
parents on their 50th Wedding Anniversary, October 14, 2011.
serving 3 years in the Army as a Physician and obtaining the
rank of Major (Valley Forge and Fort Bliss), Don established
his Childrens Specialty Clinic in Mesa, Arizona from 1973
2006, where he, not only found sunshine, but continued his
Specialty in Pediatrics.
Bonnie has been a remarkable mom, grandma, and care taker, as well. She has been a devoting mother, President of Mesa American Little League (while pregnant with Josh at
41), and the best grandmother
a child could wish for.
Note from the Editor: 10/05/11 - I was delighted to receive the above announcement from some very thoughtful children and grandchildren. Not only was I touched by their article, but it made me realize that I need to create a place on CarringtonNews.Com for special announcements such as theirs. I will be working on that idea for the future, and would like to invite people to email me with their announcements. (Sincere thanks, Judy Keller)
Happy Birthday, Dolly!
October 4th was Dolly Footitt's 97th birthday. (This photo was taken last week at Ellen and Russ Sherman's 60th wedding anniversary.) Let's all wish this terrific lady a happy, happy year - with wishes for LOTS more to come!
