    I met you Doug at the CAN-TV video taping with Frank Avila in Chicago.

    I saw this story highlighted on the Yahoo website. Thought it might be

    of interest to you, in case you had not come across it yourself. Some

    parallels to the story of Duke “The Indian”.

      Thank you, Walt for thinking of us. Yes, I have read the story. Grandpa Duke was recently honored by his ‘kin’ – The Yankton Sioux Tribe in South Dakota held a Pow Wow in honor of Duke’s service in WWII. During a sacred ceremony, they presented him with a Red Feather (a red-painted Eagle feather), in honor of his spilling blood on the battlefield. It was something to witness and be a participant!
