no wonder we hired Hunter Lochmann
Found this in an old magazine...
When old Bennie died in 1990, Ron Kramer scattered his ashes on all the athletic fields where he had starred as an outstanding athlete and won nine letters at Michigan in the middle 1920s.
"I told him I would do it," Kramer said. "A little on the football field, the baseball field and track, and a little around the rest of the campus. Bennie is everywhere at Michigan."
Have any of you done this or plan on doing it?
On this Memorial Day, we are to remember those who fell while serving our country. This article is about my unit and the time we spent in Afghanistan. I feel that reaching audience that might not normally read this article will do a small service to my fallen brothers.
A little background on me. I was a medic with Charlie Company and I was also one of the Arabic students that were mentioned in the article. I was not injured during deployment and I don't have any signs of PTSD now. I am thankful for everyday that I have on this earth. I can answer any questions if anybody has them.

Great story in the Detroit News. Monday is the 80th anniversary of the greatest 45 minutes in sports history - when Jesse Owens set four world records on our campus on May 25, 1935. There's a plaque for this at Ferry Field, and it's a tribute to our class and character that we would allow a memorial to an Ohio State athlete on our campus.
As this story points out, Willis Ward was pretty much Jesse Owens' equal in track that year - and actually beat him twice at Yost Fieldhouse two months before the record-setting day.
There has been a Jesse Owens memorial for years on U-M's campus - and now there will be a Willis Ward memorial, too. On Wednesday, they're dedicating a room at the Union in his honor.
Long live Jesse Owens, and long live Willis Ward.
Major movement in tonight's episode!
Tyrion beating up his captor was great! My comments below.
Sunday, a day of rest during a holiday where we honor our fallen heroes, talk about your most 'Extreme' day - by that I mean the day you were at your upper limit of happiest, but it can also be an 'extreme' day as in a day you were, say, the coldest, or most anxious or tired, or even something more dramatic like the most exciting or most dangerous thing you have ever done or possibly the saddest day if you care to share that.
('drunkest' day not included, unless it coincides with one of the other 'est' days)
