From the halls of Monte uma to
the Dank $ of lite Persian Gull.. .A
Tnbuic lo all ihc Veterans who so
willingly stepped forward lo answer
corner and all across the country pa
rades will be staged for the very
the country's call in lime of disrupt.
To those who gave their lives in all
wars so as we can live a peaceful life.
Veterans day is just around the
special occasion. The major wars
where all Americans were involved
will never be forgotten. Woild War I,
World War II. The Korean War,
Vietnam.and the ivrsian uuii. i ncsc
were the major wars in the past ten
lury. Everyone remembers the WWI,
v v t J-
The famous Marine Corp Memorial of the flag raising on Mt. Sarabachl, Iwo Jima, during World War II. Where Ira
Hayes was mong the flag raisers on that historical event.
where many fought in I -ranee and
Germany. And the Dig one, WWII,
where the whole world was in tur
moil as the Nai forces were taking
everything in front of them, and in
the f ar last Japan was terrorizing
everyone taking country alter coun
try all across the Pacific.
The U.S. entered the war after the
sneak attack on Pearl I lartxir, on Dc
ccmbcr 7, 1941, as President
Roosevelt said, "This day will live in
Infamy. The U.S. was on the dc
fensive for most of the beginning
until the Marines made their landing
on Guadalcanal to put them on the
offensive on a long road across the
Pacific, taking Island after Island
unucr sun resistance irom tnc Japa
nese army. The invasion of North
Africa, (he long road across to Italy,
the tough times the Americans had
and finally the invasion of Normandy
where it sort of took the wind out of
the sails of the Nazi forces. Finally
victory in Europe.
Finally in August of the same
summer Japan surrendered to end the
long bitter war as all the people cel
ebrated the end of the big war. Ev
erything went well until one morning
on June 25th. 1950, the Communist
forces crossed the 38th Parallel, in
vading the Republic or Korea in a
full scale war. The United Nations
agreed toaid the ROK.and the United
Slates was the first to send in troops
into what was a little police action.'
Well, little did they know that this
was going to be a bigger problem
than they anticipated. The cold bitter
winters spent on the hills of Korea,
but eventually the war ended and the
troops came home once again, but
there were no big parades no celebra
tions and things sort of went on like
Again the Far East, things began
to erupt, in Victnam...Troops were
sent in as advisors until it became a
real war where many people were
against the whole thing. Men chose
to go to Lonaaa to avoid tnc urau.
But for those who met the challenge
and fought the war, wc will never
forget. The Veterans were finally
recognized for their efforts in the Far
East There were all sorts of dem
onstrations all across the country,
things were in a mess. Finally things
started to come back into place when
the troops came home.
Then the Persian Gulf, where the
U.S. sent in troops to stop the aggres
sion of Saddam Hussein. Wc arc all
glad that it lasted just a short time.
We are proud of all our Veterans who
served in the armed forces. Today
there are many who arc still in need
of medical attention from all those
wars. But to all we take our hats off

Make Halloween educational
Halloween can be a good time for
learning and sharing. Here are some
ways you can help create an educa
tional treat on Halloween:
Encourage your child to dress
as a character from a book or as an
historical character. When they visit
homes for treats, they can share some
information about the person they
have dressed up to look like.
Make a costume instead of buy
ing one and have your child help!
k Read stories about Halloween
and its customs.
Before buying candy to give
out, have your child check newspa
per ads for the best buys and estimate
with you how much will be needed.
At the store, have your child
figure out the number of packages to
buy based on their estimate and have
them calculate the total price.
Read labels printed on candy
and compare with other foods like
raisins or granola bars. Discuss which
foods are better and why.
k Encourage your child to talk
about their trick or treat adventures.
Was there anyone especially inter
esting they met? What was their fa
vorite costume they saw?
Please be sure to remind yourchild
about safety before trick or treating
begins! Costumes should be easy to
spot in the dark, and yourchild should
be able to see clearly through a mask.
Wishing all a safe, enjoyable and

nature and amount of the work performed under my direction, during
the month emling June 30 ISS2.
Indians, their labors and pursuits.
During the month the larger pan of the Indians haw been absent, with
leae, in order to put up sail and dried salmon, dig roots etc. The
food supplies obtained last year -ere so far exhausted that necessity
compelled many to resort to the usual Indian methods of obtaining
subsistence, but this vrk is almost wholly performed by the Indian
women. The men usually cati-h the salmon, or kill the game, but of
the latter wry little has been killed. Many of the men haw been busy
in assisting white men to gather up stock, herd sheep, and work on
farms. During the month the Warm Springs Indians haw hauled
upwards of 20000 ft of lumber for the Industrial Boarding School
The distance from the sawmill to the Sinemasha is owr 12 miles, and
all this lumber was hauled without any charge lo the Cowrnmenl. All
they recelwd was a few rations for the teamsters. Vie Wascoes,
during the month, cut the trees, hauled in the Saw logs, look the
lumber from the saw mill, and hauled it, or owr 1S0O0 ft lo the
Agency, for a church building; all at their own charge. For these
labors the hulians deserw great credit, and it should be an item to
encourage the Department in its efforts lo civilize them.
