Native Sun News Today Editorial: A special salute to the Native Americans who proudly served


November 10, 2017

When the veterans of the many wars came home to the United States and to their home Indian reservations they were looked upon with pride and honored. Ceremonies were often held to honor them.

Clement Crazy Thunder, a United States Marine, came home on leave during World War II and met up with an old friend, Hobart Keith, United States Navy, and they bought some large containers of ice cream and took them to Holy Rosary Mission near Pine Ridge (now Red Cloud Indian School) where both had been former students. They lowered the tailgate on their truck and lined up all of the boys and scooped out ice cream on to cones. All of the boys got ice cream that day thanks to the Marines and the Navy.
