A special thank your to these two gentleman that have spent many years with this department and have decided to retire this year.  We are very sad to see them go.  No they haven't fought many fires on the front line lately but there assistance in many aspects will be truly missed.

09/22-29/2004] Moving Wall coming to Kalkaska
The 252' Moving Wall is being brought to Kalkaska by the Michigan Heritage and Research Foundation. The idea of a National Vietnam Veterans Memorial began in the late 1970s and a memorial was dedicated in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 13, 1992. John McDevitt, Gerry Haver and Norris Shears, California veterans, were concerned that not everyone could travwel to see the memorial, so they constructed a mobile or what most call "The Moving Wall," which was completed in October, 1994. The Moving Wall was paid for, like the national memorial, through public contributions. As of Jan. 1, 2003, there were 59,229 names listed on the memorial and approximately 1,300 are still unaccounted for or missing in action. There is no charge to see the wall. Many volunteers and donors will be found to pay for the approximate cost of $5,000 to bring the wall to Kalkaska and set up, along with staffing the grounds 24 hours a day for the time it is in Kalkaska. For more information, to volunteer, or to donate, call Ron Kea at the Kalkaska Public Transit Authority.
