THE MIRACLE OF THE NORTH PLATTE CANTEEN

PRESENTED BY ROSEMARY DEITZER

North Platte was a small town in the middle of Nebraska on the Union Pacific Railroad.  During World War II, this railroad line was a major route for moving soldiers across the country for training and to the east and west coasts for training and debarkation.  A town of only 12,000 people, North Platte welcomed and fed six million soldiers during the war.  Union Pacific Depot canteen was open 24 hours a day for four years.  This story honors our veterans and the wonderful people of North Platte.

Chairman of the Day:                Mary Russell
