Tragic & Forgotten
We'll be starting a new book this evening (Tuesday)at Montana History up at the Marias Heritage Center here in Shelby. I'm relieved to be leaving Somers, Montana in the ashes as I have a burning desire to begin to Dr. Charles Palmer's "Montana's Waldron Creek Fire: The 1931 Tragedy And The Forgotten Five." August 25, 1931, was when 5 men died fighting the devastating Waldron Creek Fire down west of Choteau. Memories are all that remain as National Smokejumper Association chief historian Dr. Charles Palmer shines a light on this tragic story, FINALLY honoring the heroic sacrifice that led to critical changes in wild land firefighting. See you tonight at 6 o'clock SHARP for more Montana History at the Heritage.
