Vietnam veterans come together for annual Tet Party
BY MARYANN GOGNIAT EIDEMILLER
For The Bulletin

Every Memorial Day and Veterans Day, Joe Prevenslik of Unity Township takes two cans of beer to the cemetery where Edward “Gint” Ginter is buried, and lays one can on its side on Ginter’s grave.

He opens the other, and then, he said, “I have another beer with Ed. I haven’t missed a year yet, not since 1968 when I found out where he was buried.”

The public is welcome to watch as miniature bridges made out of uncooked pasta are loaded with increasing weights until they collapse.
