  • Post 37 drops weekend slate of games

    A new group of athletes for Shelbyville Post 37 saw some hiccups in its second weekend of action, as the team dropped four straight games from Thursday to Sunday, and moved to a record of 1-5 so far this summer.

    “Really all four games we were winning at one point in time,” Post 37 coach Matt Buresh said. “It’s early and everyone knows what the ultimate goal is at the end of the season. They competed and played well, but we’re missing some pitchers due to vacation.”

    The ultimate scholarship

    Upon graduation from the University of Washington in June 1937, as the Honor Graduate of my ROTC class, I was offered a commission as 2nd Lieutenant in the Regular U.S. Marine Corps. This I accepted with enthusiasm.

    With a modicum of hyperbole, it could have been described as the ultimate scholarship: a 30-year career in the Marine Corps. However, it imposed accompanying commitments: Duty, Honor, Country!
