She is a friend of a friend and she posted it on FB. I thought it was pretty moving.

Very moving, AA. And thanks on behalf of those of us members of Shell Knob VFW Post 2203.

that's on my desktop now, here's the story:
Frank Glick took this photo at Fort Snelling National Cemetery. When he recorded the shot, he never could have guessed how much it was going to mean to the widow of the World War II veteran buried there.
the vet is Sgt. Maurice Ruch. graduated from college in mechanical engineering in December of 1941 and enlisted in the U.S. Army Air Corps. Known for his keen eye, he became a rifle marksman and was stationed in the Aleutian Islands. He served four years in the military and earned a bronze star.
what an awesome photo. wonder what the odds are of capturing this photo at 6 am ??

I wasn't sure where to post this, so I am posting it here. Maybe a mod or admin can change the thread name to "Veteran Pics" or something for future use?

Itís on Vashon Island, in Puget Sound, Washington State. It is real, not photoshopped. It is locally famous. Berkeley Breathed wove a story around this very bicycle in his delightful illustrated book ďRed Ranger Came CallingĒ.
Itís still a big mystery how the bike ended up there. Itís been there for decades. Trees do not grow upward from the base of the trunk, they grow from the tips of the topmost branches. Trunks expand outward, not upward, so that if, for example, someone carved a name at eye level on the bark, that name would stay at eye level for the life of the tree. Someone had to have climbed up there on a ladder or something to place the bike there, decades ago, probably in the late 1940′s or early 1950′s (NOT 1914). Iím fairly sure it was placed there as a practical joke.
I suspect a small handful of locals may know the secretĖbut if so, itís a carefully kept secret. There are many theoriesÖ
