Robert DesJarlait's curator insight, November 11, 2013 9:22 AM

As a tribute to our Native veterans, I'm reposting this article by my friend, Arne Vainio, M.D., that speaks eloquently of remembrance, honor, and respect to those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could be free. Mii'gwech to Arne and Ivy for representing us. I salute all my uncles who served in various wars and, in particular, I remember and honor my father - Patrick Robert DesJarlait, U.S. Navy, WWII, 1942-1945. Hoka.
