Story by Delmar Quint, written April 10,
After High School I entered the Army at Ft. Logan,
in August 1944. From there I went to Camp Crowder, Missouri, and
went to a radio operator school. From there I went to Camp
Livingston, La.for a 6-week infantry training period and then
overseas to Germany. I joined my outfit (58th Ornd. F. A.) in
March and was assigned to a half track. We crossed the Rhine
river at Manz, Germany the last of March or the first of
I was at Nuerenburg, Banberg and at the end of the war
at the Inn River at the edge of Austria. After the war I got up
to Hitler's mountain retreat at Berchtesgarden in the Alps of
Austria. I returned to the States i July of 1945 and was
stationed in Texas and La. until I was discharged in August of
Irma and I were married on June 27, 1948 and have lived
on the home place since. The kids are in 4-H and I am a Club
Photo 1970, BACK: Roger, Holly FRONT: David, Irma, Delmar One of the biggest thrills of my life was in May of 1962
when I was able to buy the old Lewis land that joined the home
place on the east side. I had scraped together all the money I
could and didn't think that was nearly enough. At the auction I
was able to buy it for just about all the money I could get.
That night the auctioneer came out and said that if I wanted to
sell he could ge men a good profit right then. I told him I had
wanted that place for so long that I didn't want to sell it.
The last two years I have been the County Chairman for
Democrat Party, but I quit last fall as things got a little rough
I guess this about brings it up to date and hope it has
of some help.
