I don t know about you, but after going through Army Basic Training and Advanced Train- ing, fireworks just haven't meant the same thing they did pre-Army. I never was sent offto a war-zone with combat action. I have the great- est respect for those who have that come into my office to apply for their benefits. Fireworks, for me, take me fight back to the night, live-fire ex- ercise where we had to wait for it to be dark and line up in a bunker. From there, we waited our turn. At the signal, we ran up this sharp concrete in- cline and ran into 'hell' as it were. The course was straight so you shouldn't have been able to get lost as long as you didn't veer off to one side or the other. We had to run, jump, and crawl our way to the other side with all of these explosions and rapid fire going off. Logically, I knew I wasn't going to get shot, but emotion- ally I was sure I wasn't going to make it. I ended up on my back to slide under some wires when a sharp pain hit me behind the ear. After a mo- ment of panic -- like getting bitten by a snake or something panic -- I found the piece of wood that had stabbed me. I finished the course with a painful scratch, and all was good. The town of Grafton certainly loves their fireworks, and I jump a lit- tle each time a large boomer gets fired into the air. I think about my fel- low Veterans who have been through the hell of war and have seen their friends wounded or killed. I remember what the Fourth of July is really about and think about those who fought for their freedom; gave their lives for their freedom. Their freedom became our freedom and we should never forget that or them. I am out of the office this month on July 25 and 27 for conferences. Give me a call at 352-5030 and schedule an appointment if you would like to talk about benefits, to which you may be entitled. Thank you for your service. Katrina Hodny, U.S. Army Veteran.

" EDINBURG, N:D. EdinbU 0g; the needs Of patients across the rez i ND hosted a blood drive with Unit- gion. Donations from O-negative ed Blood Services on June 7 at the donors, the universal blood type, are Community Center which helped especially important this time of year collect at total of 15 units of blood for patients in need. A total of 16 individuals volun- teered to donate blood and 13 indi- viduals were able to donate at the United Blood Services blood drive on June 7. A total of two donors also came forward to donate Power Red Cells (2RBC) which collects two units of red blood cells while re- tuming platelets, plasma and a saline solution back to the donor. There was one person who volun- teered for the first time. United Blood Services expressed their gratitude to the Barb Ferguson, who called donors, and Helen Sund- vor, who worked registration. UBS strives to keep a 5-day supply of every blood type on the shelf at all times to be able to meet due to increased accidents and trau- ma cases. United Blood Services is the only blood provider to nearly 70 hos- pitals across the region. The blood supply is dependent on selfless do- nations from volunteer donors to en- sure the lifesaving needs of the re- gion are met. About 30 percent ofUBS's blood supply goes to cancer patients across the region and one in seven people entering the hospital will need blood. Those relying on blood in the region receive that lifesaving blood from UBS. Donors can make a convenient appointment to give blood at or by calling (877)827-4376.
