November 19th and Bits & Pieces
Interested in Spokane history? How about the history of the Spokan Indians? John Alan Ross's new book, The Spokan Indians, is the 892-page result of his four decades of work on the subject. Cost for the book is $30; can be purchased online or at local bookstores (like Aunties).
The Spokesman Review carried a blurb about the need for photos of Washington veterans to accompany their memorial in Washington DC at the new Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall. Photos are needed for: Air Force Col. Gallileo Bossio, or Deer Park; Marine Pvt.1st Class Rocky Hanna of Addy; Army Pvt. 1st Class Melvin East, of Colfax; or Navy Lt. Cmdr. Edwin Koenig, of Spokane. If you have photos of these men, or know somebody who might, you are requested to contact www.vvmf.org/pafwan or call (800) 562-0132, option 1.
