Letter to editor: A Legion salute to Deryl Danielson

Dear Editor:
When a member of the American Legion departs from us the National American Legion records indicates a loss of one member.
When our Comrade Deryl Danielson was called away, American Legion Post No. 42 lost so much more. Deryl had served our country when he was needed. After completing his duties there and returning home, he continued to serve, as a member of our Post No. 42 Honor Guard.
As a member of the Rifle Squad he was always present whenever called upon, until his health prevented him from doing so -- loyal, conscientious, dependable and faithful to his duties, always serving with a smile.
Deryl, you served so admirably and now may you join your comrades who passed before you in that Grand Honor Guard. Rest In Peace Deryl Danielson.
“Ten -- Hut”... “Hand Salute”
Ron Paider,
American Legion Post No. 42 commander
