My Uncle Delmar was a avid quail & pheasant hunter and owned several very good bird dogs. He traveled to many different mid-western states to hunt.
Uncle Delmar could talk for hours about growing up in northern Boone Co., Missouri, he could vividly remembered his service in WW II. Uncle Delmar was true patriot and hero.
Goodbye Uncle Delmar you served your family & country honorably.
