While we were away, camping at the Dorena-Hickman Ferry last week, we met a young couple.
I did not get their first names.
The ferry had closed for the evening, the young man walked in to our camp and asked us the best way to cross the river.
Pvt. Cole is stationed at Ft. Riley KS. and had a 5 day pass to go home to ‘near Bristol, TN’ for the weekend.
We thanked him for his service, gave them an extra map of Missouri and the best directions we could.
I hope they made it.
If anyone knows them, I would like to know they made it.
