Gaylord Betcher -Mezeppa MN WW II Vet - Tauberbishofsheim 1945 to 2009
On Monday, July 13, I drove to Rochester with my friend Gary Engler to pick up his uncle Gaylord to go to his farm in Mezeppa to scan in photos from his 1942-1945 tour of Europe. He will be sharing his story at a Rochester Round Table and the photos of his journey are part of what I scanned in. While in Tauberbischofsheim, after he participated as an infantryman in the 63rd Infantry in their walk through the Siegfried Line, crossing the Rhein, he got this beer stein. I invite folks to come to his talk in Rochester on Sept 14th.
