"We few, we happy few, we band of brothers; for he to-day that sheds his blood with me shall be my brother"
35th Infantry Regiment
"Not For Fame or Reward
Not For Place or For Rank
But In Simple Obedience To
Duty as They Understood It"

"This is from someone who grew up knowing the Quirion family. Their door was always open to us neighbor kids, they had one of the first t.v.'s in the neighborhood, and we were always there it seems. His parent's were two of the nicest people you could meet, and still are." Chester 'Chet' Messer 47 Eames Hill Rd. Madison, Me. 04950
