This will be my final writing of the Looking Back column. Next week the column will be written by the very capable Paul Gubrud. I’ve always been a history buff so this was a perfect project for me, but it is time for me to take a break from writing for a while.

I have enjoyed writing this column and learning the history of Pelican Rapids. One of the most interesting things that I learned was about World War I and II. The sacrifices that the American people made to make sure our troops were successful was something that I had never heard before.

Never forget that the history of our town and country is important to learn, so past mistakes are not repeated!!
