February 8, 2013

Photo by Victoria Stanish Vietnam veteran Ron Schloder (U.S. Marine Corps, 1st Reconnaissance, 1966-1969) is pictured with his grandson, Ethan Ott. Schloder, along with other area veterans, spoke about his military service to students at St. Boniface School on “Nation Day” held recently during Catholic Schools Week.
